What Our Clients Are Saying

Proving Fault in Premises Liability Cases

To prove fault or negligence in a slip and fall case, the victim must prove that the person in charge of the property failed to act in a way that any reasonable person would in addressing the dangerous condition that led to the accident. In doing so, the victim and their legal team must find the answers to some relevant questions that include the following:

Was the hazardous condition present for a long enough time that a reasonably attentive person would have noticed and done something about it?
Did the person in charge of the property create the dangerous condition?
Did the property owner or manager know about the dangerous condition?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then the property owner or manager can be held liable because it can be determined that their negligence caused the dangerous condition to occur or persist. You should note that while you are intent on proving that the property owner or someone who works for them was responsible for the condition that led to the accident, they will be trying to prove that you were at fault instead.

Common Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents

  • Poor Maintenance: Neglecting maintenance of common walkways, sidewalks, parking lots, and stairs can result in cracked or uneven surfaces, making it easy for residents to trip and fall.

  • ​Wet or Slippery Surfaces: Failure to address wet or slippery surfaces caused by rain, snow, or ice promptly can lead to accidents.
  • ​Uneven Pavement or Flooring: Uneven pavement, flooring, or loose tiles can create tripping hazards.
  • Insufficient Handrails: Missing or damaged handrails on stairs or ramps can make it challenging for residents, especially those with mobility issues, to maintain balance and prevent falls.
  • Poorly Designed or Maintained Landscaping: Overgrown bushes, tree roots disrupting walkways, and other landscaping issues can obstruct paths and increase the risk of tripping.
  • ​Lack of Warning Signs: Failure to place warning signs near hazards, such as wet floors or construction zones, can lead to accidents.
