Store Surveillance Footage is a Critical Piece of Evidence in Slip and Fall Cases

As surveillance technologies have improved and expanded in recent years, an increasing number of stores have been placed under camera surveillance at all times. These audio and visual depictions can become the centerpiece of personal injury litigation when slip and fall accidents occur. Store owners use such footage to defend the condition of their premises or prove a victim’s physical condition after a fall. Accident victims can also access such footage to prove that an unsafe condition existed. In fact, one such personal injury award included punitive damages against the defendant grocery store, in part because the store failed to preserve surveillance footage of the accident despite being specifically placed on notice of the accident and asked to save the footage. The punitive damage award was one million dollars.

Surveillance footage can be more nefarious than the expected cameras on a store’s premises. An Australian man learned this lesson the hard way after he sued a Woolworth’s store for injuries sustained after he slipped on a grape in the produce section. The man’s court pleadings asserted that he could no longer walk, stand, or drive for extended periods of time. Woolworth’s attorneys obtained surveillance footage of the man outside his home which contradicted all of these claims. The court ultimately awarded eleven thousand dollars for those claims which had not been contradicted by the footage.

For better or worse, surveillance technologies have made camera footage highly accessible. This does hurt some plaintiffs who are not prepared for it. However, in the hands of a competent personal injury attorney, such footage can be used as evidence to strengthen a plaintiff’s claim in a slip and fall lawsuit.
