The Importance of Evidence

The Importance of Evidence in Slip and Fall Cases

At Dingeman & Dancer, PLC, a leading law firm in Traverse City, MI, we know how to navigate Michigan’s complex premise liability laws. 

In Michigan, proving a premise owner’s negligence involves demonstrating that they knew or should have known about the dangerous condition and failed to take action. Detailed, timely evidence is the cornerstone of proving this knowledge and liability. 

Evidence is the linchpin to a successful slip and fall claim in Michigan. When a slip and fall occurs, it is important to immediately gather evidence such as photos of accumulated ice, liquid spills, or any hazard that caused the fall. This evidence can be invaluable. Similarly, witness accounts can provide corroborative testimony that can bolster a claim.  

Medical documentation is equally critical. Immediate medical attention not only ensures a proper assessment of injuries but also serves as an official record linking injuries directly to the incident. Detailed medical reports and receipts for medical expenses establish the economic impact of the fall. 

Retaining legal counsel is essential in these cases. The attorneys at Dingeman & Dancer, PLC are experienced in navigating the evidentiary challenges of slip and fall claims. We understand the nuances of Michigan law and how to effectively leverage evidence to obtain the best outcome for our clients.
