How to Win a Slip and Fall Accident Case?

In order to win a slip and fall settlement, you need to prove that the owner of the property where the incident happened is guilty of creating the dangerous condition that led to the incident, of being aware of the situation, and of failing to act upon this knowledge, thus creating favorable conditions for your injuries to happen.

Slip and fall cases are especially difficult. Owners of properties are not insurers of the people that happen to be on their property. You have to prove that they did something wrong.

Sometimes slip and fall accidents are apparently caused by the negligence of property owners. However, in the majority of cases, the identity of the responsible party is not evident. To prove you have a slip and fall case, you need to show that:

  • There was a dangerous condition on the ground that caused you to fall;
  • The owner knew or should have known the condition existed but did not do anything to remedy it or the owner of the property created the dangerous condition;
  • The condition caused your injuries.

In this type of cases, you need the counsel of an experienced lawyer. It's important to take pictures at the time of the accident and do anything you can to preserve the scene.
