How do I make a slip and fall claim?
To make a slip and fall claim, you file a complaint for compensation in the appropriate court. You conduct an investigation and use formal evidence-gathering techniques to build the evidence. It’s up to you to show that another party is responsible for your accident by falling short of applicable legal standards. You may present your evidence in court, or you may reach a resolution by negotiating a settlement with the other party.
What to prove to win a slip and fall
To win a slip and fall, you must prove that the accident occurred because of the negligence of another party. In the case of business owners, they have a very high legal responsibility to keep their property safe for visitors. You must prove that the property owner didn’t take a reasonable amount of care for the safety of others.
If you were hurt on someone’s property you can expect the party to defend themselves by claiming it could be your fault for your injuries. Common arguments include:
- You were in a part of the property that you should have not been or didn’t receive permission to be in.
- You were not paying proper attention because you were distracted by your cell phone.
- You knew the conditions of the property and were not wearing proper footwear.
- You ignored warnings and signage of the dangerous conditions.
- The dangerous property condition should have been obvious to you.
