        Question:

        What Are Common Mistakes People Make If They Have Been Injured in a Slip and Fall?

        Answer:

        Some common mistakes that we see when clients come in after they have fallen at a local venue in Orlando, Florida, such as a theme park or shopping center, is that oftentimes there’s a failure to preserve evidence. In these slip and fall cases, oftentimes there’s a certain element that has caused this slip and fall to occur. For example, if you’re at a local shopping or food venue, there may be some type of liquid or other item on the floor that caused the fall. This item may be removed or it may be discarded after you have left the scene. After that, that could become an important and contentious issue in your case.

        What we recommend is to avoid those problems is to make sure that, if you can, if you’re physically able to or if someone nearby is physically able to, is make sure to document that scene as detailed as possible. If you have your cellphone or if you have a camera, take pictures of the area. Take pictures of your injury. Take pictures of the employees. Get names so you can recognize the people that were there or the employees that were there and attended to you because many people get surprised when they try to go back and get this information, maybe those employees are no longer working there, the scene will be cleaned or that material that may have caused you to fall will be long gone by that time. Very important in those types of cases is to make sure that you document the scene, what may or may not have caused you to fall, and your injuries.

        Another thing that we see that can affect a slip and fall case in Orlando, Florida is the failure to get an incident report or have the store file an incident report. Many times when we have clients come in and we ask for that incident report, they tell me that one wasn’t offered to them or they weren’t given a copy of the one that they filled out. These are things that could affect your case in the future. One, make sure that an incident report gets filled out. Then number two, get a copy of that incident report. After all, it is our incident and it’s your name or your signature most likely on that document. That’s something that you should be able to get from those companies or those businesses. That will help you in the future.

        The other thing is to make sure that you get with an attorney that has handled slip and fall cases in Orlando, Florida. That’s a mistake that we often see some clients make. We get clients that come in oftentimes that they’ve been represented by other attorneys who are not familiar with this specific type of case and we have to take over the case and then we can go forward and help them with that. These are some of the things that can help you in your slip and fall case. If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to contact our office.

        “In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”– David and Jennifer Alvarez
