Slip and Fall accident attorneyAfter you file a slip and fall lawsuit, the parties participate in “discovery,” by which each party can discover the other party’s evidence about the facts of the case. Discovery encompasses several different methods, including interrogatories (written questions), written requests to produce documents or things, written requests for admissions (requests to admit the truth of certain facts), and depositions (oral recorded examinations). The defendant’s attorney and your Orange County personal injury attorney present this evidence to the jury at trial by questioning the witnesses.

Useful discovery materials include:

  • Store manager’s deposition
  • Store safety personnel’s deposition
  • Maintenance personnel deposition
  • Employee depositions
  • Interrogatories or requests for admission regarding store maintenance
  • Defense expert depositions


A skilled Orange County personal injury attorney will use exhibits to help the jurors understand the details of the case. Key exhibits in a slip and fall injury case include:

  • Photographs
  • Diagrams of the accident scene
  • Expert’s drawings, measurements, or diagrams
  • Models or video recordings showing maintenance conditions
  • Samples of spilled material
  • Chart summarizing key testimony
