Should I take any photographs if I was injured in a slip and fall?

In Florida, if you've been injured in a slip and fall accident, it's almost always a good idea to take photographs of the scene, and specifically of whatever caused you to fall. In the case of a liquid, or what's legally known as a transitory foreign substance, a fancy way of saying something's on the ground, and it can actually be moved. Assuming that item, or that substance is cleaned up after, it'd be very difficult to prove that it was there, unless you have witnesses, so it's almost always a good idea to take a little, quick photo with your camera phone, then share that with an attorney, so you can get an opinion on your case, and make sure that you preserve all the evidence, to help his job, to prove your case down the road.

What Our Clients Say
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. - M.P.
After my accident, i felt like I was being pulled in a bunch of different directions. I really didn't know what to do and all I wanted was someone to shoot me straight. 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 - D.L.
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. - S.C.
