Amount of evidence questioned in slip and fall case

On Oct. 1, 2015, a man walked into a property that was owned and maintained by We Buy Houses Lancaster LLC. He was there as an invitee or tenant (though it is not clarified in the source article which classification he was) and he slipped on a wet substance on the ground which caused him to suffer injuries that may be "serious or permanent in nature." Details are sparse, but it sounds like he fractured his wrist multiple times and suffered other injuries that the lawsuit he filed against We Buy Houses Lancaster LLC described as causing him "great pain and suffering."

We Buy Houses Lancaster has filed an objection to the lawsuit, claiming that the plaintiff has not provided enough evidence to substantiate his claims and, thus the lawsuit. If that objection is denied, then the plaintiff's case will move forward as is.

This story highlights two important factors in slip and fall cases. The first is that evidence in these cases is crucial. It isn't enough to suffer injuries and expect your pain and suffering to "carry the day," as it were, to earn you the justice you so rightly deserve. Medical records, photographic evidence, the condition of the property, the urgency of the owner or manager to address the dangerous condition, and many other factors will play a role in proving or disproving your claims.

And that brings up the second important factor: legal help. Slip and fall cases are never as simple or easy as they seem. Consult with an attorney early in the process to bolster your case.
