Many slip & fall accidents are the results of negligence
When proper precautions are not taken to maintain safe premises, accidents are bound to happen. Failure to install handrails, use signs to inform the public of a wet floor, improper, marking, painting and signage, failure to repair defects in concrete, tile and asphalt like pot holes, and other construction errors are examples of negligence. While a slip and fall injury may seem like no big deal, many result in serious injury including broken bones, spinal injuries and even head trauma and brain injuries.

What to do following a slip and fall accident
If you are injured in a slip and fall accident, there are a few things you can do to help your attorney win your case. The most important of these is to be sure to photograph the scene of the accident as well as your injuries immediately to preserve the evidence. Be careful about giving a recorded interview with the insurance company as it is working against you. In Tennessee, if the conditions are repaired before you obtain pictures, they may not be able to be used in court. Recorded interviews can be used in court to disprove your claims.
