The Type of Shoes You Wear Has Impact on the Case
Video Transcribed: Does the type of shoe that you were wearing during an Oklahoma premises liability incident matter? Hey everyone, Christopher Stevens here certified paralegal with the Wirth Law Office in Tulsa, Oklahoma, working in personal injury in Oklahoma. And today we’re going to be talking about whether or not the type of shoe you were wearing during a premises liability incident matters.
Now, I am here to tell you that it’s had a pretty big impact on a lot of my client’s cases. We’ve had some clients who were wearing skidproof workboats but were still the victim of a premises liability incident because there was very clear soap on the floor that they didn’t see.
And I’ve also had clients who were walking in really old foam flip-flops that looked like they could have been family heirlooms and a lot of the time that can impact the case.
In the later incident the insurance company tried to say, “Well look, she could have slipped on anything wearing those. Those weren’t even proper shoes to be wearing.” Now that isn’t to say that that entirely discounts one of our client’s claims or that they don’t have a case at all but it’s definitely something that can impact it.
So be sure to talk to your legal counsel and let them know what you were wearing at the time of the incident. As always, if you find yourself looking for a personal injury attorney in Oklahoma in which you need to seek legal help concerning your accident, feel free to contact a Tulsa Personal Injury Attorney.
