After I Fell At The Supermarket, I Noticed There Was A Video Camera Pointed In The Direction Of My Fall. What’s The Best Way To Get A Hold Of It?
Many businesses like grocery stores and retail stores use video cameras as a safety measure; however, sometimes their video cameras can be used against them to prove liability in South Florida slip and fall accidents. Because store owners and managers know that video footage can be used to prove negligence in a slip and fall case, they often do not provide a customer with a copy of the video.
In order for you to find out what is on that video camera, you should speak with an experienced Broward County slip and fall lawyer immediately. An attorney can secure the video footage by sending a spoliation letter by certified mail to the store. The letter explains to the store that they have a legal duty to maintain and preserve the video. This means that if they fail to do this and the video gets destroyed, it is spoliation of evidence under the law.
When a store does not preserve the requested piece of evidence, it will indicate that it could have been harmful to your case. However, some stores only keep their videos for weeks or months and then record over them again. In order for your video to not be destroyed, you need to contact the Law Offices of David Benenfeld today.
