Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents can occur when a dangerous condition causes an individual to slip, trip, or fall on another entity’s property, causing an injury, and sometimes even death. These types of accidents are more common than you think and can happen anywhere, resulting in serious injuries or even death. Victims of a slip and fall accident can file a lawsuit, in which the victim must prove that the accident was caused due to another’s negligence.

How is Negligence Proven?

In order to prove negligence, the following must be submitted as evidence:

  • The defendant had a duty to keep the property reasonably safe
  • The defendant violated that duty by allowing a dangerous condition to exist on the property
  • The dangerous condition was the cause of the victim’s accident
  • The victim suffered injuries due to the accident

In some slip and fall cases, the victims may also be held partially negligent for their injuries. This may be due to running in a store or a similar instance. When a slip and fall victim is held partially liable for their injuries, their total damages may be decreased due to their negligence or carelessness.
