Proving Negligence in a Slip and Fall Accident

Negligence in a slip and fall case is measured as a failure to live up to an obligation known as a duty to exercise reasonable care to prevent other people from getting injured. In these types of cases, property owners can fail to uphold a duty of care by not cleaning up a spill, not putting up warning signs to alert visitors of a dangerous condition in a walkway or failing to make repairs to a staircase.

Some factors to consider when trying to prove negligence over a slip and fall injury may include:

  • Whether the property owner knew or should have known about the obstacle or hazard that caused your injury
  • Whether the property owner did not take reasonable steps to fix the hazard or eliminate it
  • Whether the owner failed to display signs warning about a dangerous condition on the property
  • Whether the owner was the one who damaged the property

The property owner's legal responsibility for your safety depends on your status on the property. If you were an invitee – which means you had permission to enter the property – the owner must exercise ordinary care. This means maintaining the premises in such a way to prevent non-trespassers from suffering an injury.
