Photographs are frequently helpful pieces of evidence in Illinois slip and fall accident lawsuits. They serve an important purpose in helping everyone investigating the accident to know exactly where you fell. They help the jury understand what the conditions were like where you fell, how you fell, and why the property owner was negligent with regard to your fall.
One of the things that we do when we are hired immediately after a slip and fall accident is send an experienced investigator to the scene to take photographs and measurements. Many times when clients try to do this on their own, they take photographs from so close that all of the details are out of focus or it is impossible to tell what is being shown in the photograph.An experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer will have access to well-qualified investigators who will be able to properly document conditions at the scene of a slip and fall accident, so this is one reason to act quickly to hire a lawyer following a serious injury from a slip and fall accident.
