Proving Fault in Trip and Fall Cases

Sometimes it can be difficult to prove fault in slip and fall / trip and fall cases because negligence is not always as easily detected. Drinks can spill and potholes are common, so it takes a special kind of evidence to prove that negligence did occur.

For the defendant to be charged with negligence, it must be shown that the owner did not exercise appropriate "reasonableness."

The following can help when determining reasonableness:

  • Was the quality of the lighting good enough?
  • Should the object that caused the accident have been moved to a different area?
  • Does the property owner follow a regular maintenance regimen?
  • Should the owner have enacted a warning about the dangerous object or area?

The better you can determine that the property owner was negligent, the better your chances of receiving a high level of compensation.
