What types of evidence can help in a premises liability case?

premises liability lawyer

Individuals injured in a premises liability accident have the right to pursue compensation. However, first you must prove that you were hurt due to the property owner’s negligence and the existence of a hazard on their property.

There are many different types of premises liability cases such as slip and fall accidents and dog bites. Here are some types of evidence that can help support your claim.

Photos: Take photos of your injuries and the dangerous conditions that caused them, such as puddles on a supermarket floor or potholes in a parking lot. These photos should be taken as soon as possible so that the property owner does not get a chance to fix the hazard or post warning signs.

Official reports: Obtain copies of the incident report and police report if available. Such reports contain valuable details about the accident including when, where and how it happened. They may also include statements and contact information from witnesses and the parties involved.

Witness testimony: It is possible to interview anyone who saw the accident. Their testimony can be a powerful way to strengthen your claim. Your personal injury lawyer may also collect testimonies from various expert witnesses such as an engineer, accident reconstructionist or medical expert. They can help verify the facts of the accident.

Medical records and bills: Hold on to any prescription information, receipts, diagnostic imaging and other health care records. They will enable your lawyer establish the extent of your injuries and treatment costs.

Employment records: Copies of paystubs, income tax returns and other financial documentation provide proof of the losses you suffered during your recovery, such as lost wages, bonuses, commissions or vacation time.

An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you determine what proof is required in your case. Along with collecting the necessary evidence, the lawyer will also make sure it is preserved properly.
