When these types of accidents occur due to the negligence of a property owner, the property owner may be held liable for damages connected with the injuries.

If a hazardous condition exists on the premises, the owner or manager should remedy the situation as soon as possible and post warning signs to advise others of the danger.

Proving Liability in Slip and Fall Cases

In an injury lawsuit, the burden of proof is on you to demonstrate that your accident could have been prevented with proper diligence from the property owner. Far too often, stores conveniently lose or erase video tapes showing the accident occurring or the scene right before the accident. The faster you hire an attorney, the sooner they can start investigating and collecting all evidence that proves your claim.

Key elements in demonstrating fault in falls and slipping include:

  • Signs of unsafe conditions, such as damp flooring, uneven floors, or poor lighting
  • Documentation that the owner of the property should have understood through a reasonable inspection that unsafe conditions existed
  • Demonstrating that the condition of the property caused your injuries directly

When you partner with our firm, you can count on us to gather evidence, speak with witnesses, and create a compelling case to make the negligent party answerable for your injuries.
