Things To Prove First

Slip and fall accidents are common, but to obtain compensation in a personal injury lawsuit, you need a good attorney such as The Herron Law Firm to prove three things:

  • Negligence: These cases usually hinge upon proving negligence by a party, such as a business owner, landlord, city government, etc. The plaintiff must show that the negligent party engaged in a lack of proper care that caused the danger that led to the injury. For example, if a store clerk mops the linoleum floor and fails to put out wet floor signs, this is a lack of reasonable care that could lead to a serious injury.
  • Knowledge:In a slip and fall case, the plaintiff usually can only be found negligent if they were aware or should have been aware of the hazard. This knowledge may be proven through legal discovery where The Herron Law Firm requests documents and video footage to build the case.
  • Reasonable expectation: State law also states that plaintiffs can show that the defendant should have reasonably expected an accident to occur because of certain conditions. While this does make it more possible to win a slip and fall case, proving that a defendant should have reasonably expected an accident to occur is difficult at best.
