Proving Liability in Slip and Fall Accidents

All property owners owe a duty of care to patrons, customers, guests, and anyone else invited onto the premises. This duty of care includes making sure that the premises are safe and free from any dangerous condition. If there is a danger present, then the property owner has a duty to inform guests with clear and visible signs. Failure to do so amounts to negligence and can result in liability.

When proving slip and fall liability, you must be able to show:

  • The property owner was aware of the dangerous condition, or should have known about it as a reasonable person would
  • The property owner did not take action to repair the dangers in a timely manner, or failed to warn guests
  • The dangerous condition caused you bodily injuries
