How a Miami Slip and Fall Attorney Can Help
In any kind of premises liability case, it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible to investigate quickly and preserve evidence. We have seen cases where potholes in pavement have been filled the next day, sidewalks bulldozed days later, and other unsafe conditions corrected.
Under Florida law, once a property condition is made safer through a remedial measure, any evidence of that improvement is not admissible at trial. To show negligence, your lawyer needs to obtain photos of the property conditions that caused you to fall before those conditions are corrected. In the case of a transient substance on a floor such as water, the evidence will consist of your testimony describing the condition that caused you to fall. In many cases, your lawyer will need to hire an expert to evaluate the dangerous condition that caused your injury.
