Physical Evidence for Slip and Fall Cases

A person should give all photos to their personal injury lawyer and document the area in which they fell. They should have pictures from several different angles and show the background and other physical features of where they fell. All pictures need to be in color. If a person feel on the stairs at least one picture so should show in which direction they were traveling.
Measurements are important in slip and fall cases. Changes in the location such as the elevation of walkways, broken areas, holes, depressions or cracks need to be measured immediately. It may be too late by the time an official report is issued. An investigator will document their measurements as well as experts.
