Frequently Asked Slip and Fall Injury Questions

How Can You Prove a Boulder Slip and Fall Claim?

If you are filing a slip and fall lawsuit, you will need to prove that the person responsible for the hazardous conditions that led to your fall acted in negligence. This means that he or she either knew or should have reasonably known about the hazard and failed to take action.

How Do You Prove Negligence of a Slip and Fall Injury?

To prove negligence, you and your attorney will need to gather evidence to prove the following four elements:

  1. The at-fault party owed you a duty of care.
  2. The at-fault party breached his or her duty of care.
  3. The breach of care directly caused your injuries.
  4. You suffered damages as a result of your injuries you can claim in your lawsuit.

For example, say that you slip on a patch of ice in front of a grocery store. The snow had recently melted and frozen over, and the grocery store employees failed to clear away the snow or post hazard signs. You suffer broken bones and a concussion as a result of these injuries.

You can establish that the store owners had a duty of care to maintain safe premises, including clearing away snow before it melts and turns into ice. The grocery store failed to uphold its duty by failing to clear the snow or posting hazard signs.

You can use your medical records and witness testimony to prove your injuries, and your attorney can help you understand which damages you qualify for.

What Are Possible Defenses in Slip and Fall Cases?

While you may have the evidence necessary to establish negligence in your slip and fall case, the at-fault party and his or her lawyer will likely come with a set of defenses to try and diminish your credibility.

For example, the at-fault party may claim that you were trespassing at the time of the accident and had no legal right to be on the property, thus nullifying your claim. He or she may also claim that you were not wearing proper shoes that day, contributing to the fall. The at-fault party may also state that he or she was unaware of the hazard and had no reasonable way to know about it.

In these situations, your attorney from Jordan Law will conduct a thorough investigation into your claim to combat these defenses. We will utilize the full extent of our resources and expert witnesses to build a compelling claim in your favor.
