Proving Negligence of a Slip and Falls Accident
To win a lawsuit for a slip and fall accident, you will need to prove the negligence of the property owner or tenant. Typically, time is an important factor when proving negligence. For instance, how long was the hazard present? Was it there long enough for the property owner to be able to notice the hazard and remove it? The experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorneys at Brent Gordon Law Firm will aggressively fight to prove the negligence of a property owner in a slip and fall case.
Evidence Needed to Win a Slip and Fall Injury Claim
In order to prove the negligence of another party for the injuries suffered in a slip and fall accident, you will typically need to prove one of the following:
- The property owner (or their employee) should have noticed the hazard which caused the slip and fall accident and remove or fix the dangerous condition. For example, a property owner failed to remove or salt or icy from sidewalks.
- A property owner (or their employee) caused a dangerous situation which leads to a slip and fall accident. For example, if an employee moped the floor at the grocery and left a large puddle without putting warning signs around the dangerous area. The employee was negligent for leaving a wet floor unattended without proper warning signs to make customers aware of the dangerous condition.
Slip and fall injury claims often question what is “reasonable” for the situation. To be held liable or considered negligent, a property owner must be proven guilty of reasonably correcting a hazardous situation. The following are some common questions ask to determine if the situation was reasonable:
- Was the hazardous condition or obstacle present long enough for the property owner or their employee to eliminate the danger?
- Could the dangerous situation have been prevented?
- Was a policy in place for routine checks on the property to eliminate hazardous conditions?
