Auger & Hollingsworth

  • We were able to settle the case out of court due to Brenda's hard work, diligence and patience, for an amount that we're very pleased with. I would certainly recommend Brenda from Auger Hollingsworth. She did a fantastic job for us.

A thorough understanding of the evolving and fact-specific case law and statutes is essential to successful legal representation.  To improve the likelihood of success in yoru slip and fall case follow these tips:

    • Keep,  but stop wearing,  whatever you had on your feet.  Your shoes or boots should be preserved as they were at the time of the fall.
    • Take photos of the location of the fall as soon as possible, ideally before the weather or repair conditions change.  However, even if there has been a change, it is better to take photos as soon as you can.
    • Keep track of any witnesses’ contact info.  Even if the witnesses did not see your fall, they can speak about the condition of the area of the fall.
    • Take notice of what caused you to fall. If there was something on the ground like oil or food that caused you to slip, have a look at the shape, size and location of the spill.  If you clothes were soiled by the substance that caused the spill, take photos of the dirty clothes.
