									How to Win Your Slip and Fall Case One of the most difficult cases to win is actually slip and fall injuries. This is because it’s very hard to pinpoint who should be responsible for it. Let’s consider these two scenarios: Scenario 1. Timothy was used to riding the bus in going home. One day, he decided to just walk and passed by his neighbor’s property. The 20-minute walk could have been uneventful if he had not fallen down in the huge hole on the ground. Nobody—not even Timothy—noticed it since it was covered with a huge chunk of grass. Timothy suffered bruises and fractured ankle, which prevented him from going to school for a couple of weeks. His family also spent thousands of dollars for his treatment and therapy. His family won the insurance claim, though. It turned out that there were already prior cases, and despite the prodding of the other neighbors, the owner of the lot did not do anything to prevent more accidents. Scenario 2. Timothy was used to riding the bus in going home. One day, he decided to just walk and passed by his neighbor’s property. The 20-minute walk could have been uneventful if he had not fallen down in the huge hole on the ground. Nobody—not even Timothy—noticed it since it was covered with a huge chunk of grass. Timothy suffered bruises and fractured ankle, which prevented him from going to school for a couple of weeks. His family also spent thousands of dollars for his treatment and therapy. But his family did not win the case. Here’s why: It used to have a steel cover until someone decided to steal it. Moreover, the property no longer belongs to the accused as it has already been sold prior to the accident. Thus, if you truly want to win a slip and fall case, it’s essential that you can establish the real culprit of the accident: was it the property or building owner, your co-worker or neighbor, or even you? You also need the information to determine where you’re going to claim your insurance. When the responsible party is clearly determined based on your accounts, it’s time that you gather proofs of evidence. Your testimony, though valuable, may not have very strong grip on the case if you can’t show any evidence. You can look for any witnesses, photographs, reports, and other documents that can help you out. It’s also important that you get to work with professional personal injury lawyers, who can show you where, how, and when to look for information related to your case.
