Q: How do the shoes I am wearing affect a slip and fall?

A: In just about every slip-and-fall case, the business establishment or its attorneys wants to know what types of shoes or footwear that you were wearing at the time, how old they were, how worn out they were, and they will always ask you to produce them in the lawsuit if you still have them. You will have to produce your footwear for the inspection of the other side. If you’re wearing old shoes or you’re wearing flip flops, many times the insurance companies or the business establishments will try to blame the injured person for the type of footwear that he or she was using. This happens often in cases where women are wearing high heels. Many times these defenses don’t work, but it’s something that in every case the insurance company tries to do.
