Investigation of Miami Gardens Slip and Fall

The Slip and Fall Attorneys serving Miami Gardens investigate the claims of their clients and when needed, employ the necessary experts to determine who is responsible for the injuries. Experts in the Florida Building Code are consulted to provide opinions of whether the defendant’s property was constructed in a manner that met or exceeded the Code. Other experts can include engineers, human factors, and construction management.

The investigation can include a search for public records showing prior and similar incidents. If previous accidents are discovered, then the property owner will not be able to claim that they had no notice of the dangerous condition. This is a very common defense asserted by property owners, insurance companies and insurance defense attorneys.

Another area of investigation is to determine if there are any videotapes of the slip and fall. To get this information, the Miami Gardens Slip and Fall Attorneys usually require the assistance of the court. To get the court’s help a lawsuit must be filed. Our lawyers have had numerous hearings on the issue of whether a defendant store owner must provide a copy of the videotape showing the actual slip and fall.
