How to Prove Fault in a Slip and Fall Case

If an owner is not careful in keeping up a property or taking care of a dangerous situation then they may be accountable for any damages they cause under premises liability laws.

When you a file a claim with the courts, they will investigate your case to see who is at fault. You may be able to prove that the owner is responsible for your damages if one of the following is true of your situation:

  • The owner or one of their employees caused the dangerous surface or item to be present
  • The owner or one of their employees knew about the dangerous surface or item, but made no action to improve the situation
  • The owner or one of their employees should have known about the dangerous surface or item because any "reasonable" person would have known about it and fixed it

Judges and juries may determine the reasonableness of the owner by finding out if the owner had made regular efforts to make the property safe. They can review the amount of times the owner conducted maintenance checks and cleanings. In addition, they will see if the owner put up any warning signs or barriers and if they had a good reason to put the object in the place it was.
