Why You Should Take Photographs Following a Slip and Fall Accident

Posted in: Blog // Written on behalf of Cuming & Gillespie
May 21, 2015

If you have been involved in a slip and fall accident, from which you have suffered injury, one of the questions you will be asked by any consulting lawyer is whether you have photos of the location where the fall occurred. Having photographic evidence of the scene either immediately after the fall or soon after can be extremely helpful in proving negligence on the part of the property owner (or whoever else may be allegedly at fault). This is especially important in Alberta where a substantial number of slip and fall accidents occur because of snow or ice not being properly cleared or otherwise dealt with. Similarly, if there were any witnesses to your fall, who would therefore be able to provide further information as to the conditions of the area and how you fell, it is important to get their contact information, which you can later provide to your lawyer.
