Are witnesses important in a Florida slip and fall case?

In the state of Florida, slip and fall cases are very, very hotly contested and well fought out, typically along the lines of negligence. Who was at fault, who caused the accident, probably even more so than other types of accidents. As a result, the presence of witnesses and securing their information, securing their statement, is extremely important. Typically, the value of a case without witnesses will be substantially less than the value of a case with witnesses.

We always ask that if you're involved in a pedestrian accident, a slip and fall accident, premises liability case, anything to do at a business while walking, a trip and fall, anything along those lines, if there are witnesses present, please make sure that you get their information, hire an experienced attorney, so they can follow up with them and get a statement.

“The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again.”

The lawyers at the firm were so honest and definitely pointed me in the right direction. The staff was professional. I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable”

“After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court.”
