How Do You Prove Liability in Your Slip & Fall Case?
Slip and fall accidents can happen virtually anywhere, from stairways to parking lots. In many cases, property owners are at fault for failing to make expected and reasonable repairs to their property.
When they fail to provide the proper upkeep, it can put visitors, residents, or customers in danger. While you may adamantly believe that your injury was caused by a property owner’s negligence, this is not enough to win your case.
You must also provide compelling evidence and proof that they are at fault for your slip and fall incident.
To hold a property owner responsible, you need to prove that:
- Owner of the premises was aware or should have reasonably been aware of the hazard
- Owner of the premises failed to make appropriate adjustments to prevent injury
- You acted in a reasonable and expected manner when the injury occurred
The last aspect of a slip and fall claim is one that people often overlook. Even if an owner was aware of a hazard and didn’t make any changes, if you were acting recklessly or negligently on the property, you could compromise your claim.
For example, if you were not using common sense when the slip and fall occurred, it could be ruled that you contributed to or fully caused your injuries and therefore cannot be compensated.
On the other hand, an owner may be held responsible if they fail to make reasonable changes to their property. For example, if there is pothole right in front of the entrance to their store that could lead to injuries, they are reasonably be expected to fix it.
If they fail to make repairs and injuries occur from this issue, they may be considered liable for your damages.
