Being the victim of a San Diego slip-and-fall accident on public or private property can feel embarrassing. Chances are the accident was not your fault, so dismiss those feelings of embarrassment.

Due to the fact that a large number of slips and falls in San Diego are not the fault of the victim, a claim may be filed to recover damages. When recovering damages, it is important for the victim to be able to build a strong case.

The best way to begin to build your case is to have solid evidence to support the claims being brought forward. Three pieces of evidence that are essential to building a strong case in the victim’s favor are:

  • Eyewitness – An eyewitness will be a great tool in building a strong case. The witness will be able to tell in her own words an account of what occurred before, during, and after the accident. It is important to gather the eyewitness’s name, contact information, and a brief statement of what she saw.
  • Photographs – A photograph is hard to dispute. A victim can use a mobile phone to take photos of what caused the accident. Presenting pictures during a claim will give a clear understanding of the environment in which the accident occurred.
  • Medical Records – The victim of a slip and fall should always keep well-organized and detailed medical records. This will help to determine how much damage the accident actually caused.
