Determining Liability in a Slip and Fall Accident:
The law here can be quite murky. What is considered to be “reasonable” caution on the part of the slip and fall victim is often up for debate, as is what could be considered “reasonable” on the part of the property owner or that owner’s employee. In order for the property owner to be considered liable for a slip and fall accident, one of the following criteria must be met:
The property owner or employee must have caused the condition that led to the victim’s fall. I.E., the property owner caused a spill that resulted in dangerous, slippery conditions.
The property owner or employee knew of a dangerous situation and did nothing to rectify it.
The property owner or employee should have discovered the dangerous condition because a “reasonable” person would have discovered the hazard and made moves to rectify it. This situation requires the property owner or their employees to conduct regular safety checks.
If you are involved in a slip and fall accident, do your best to take a photo of the environment and hazards at the time of your fall. Property owners can easily clear hazards by the time a lawsuit is filed, which can make dangerous conditions difficult to prove.
