What do you have to prove in a slip and fall case?
Establishing who is at fault for a slip and fall accident typically requires proving one or more of the following:
- The property owner caused the hazardous conditions that led to the slip and fall accident and did nothing to repair them or warn visitors about them.
- The property owner was aware of the hazardous conditions and did nothing to repair them or warn visitors about them.
- The property owner should have been aware of the hazardous conditions because a “reasonable” person in the same situation would have been aware of them. The owner could or should have repaired them or warned visitors about them.
