How You Can Win a California Slip and Fall Case (It's Challenging, but Worth the Fight)
Winning a slip and fall case, more formally known as a premises liability case, is not always easy. You can't just walk into a courtroom, say you slipped on a wet supermarket floor, and collect thousands of dollars. An injured victim must prove either that the property owner created the hazard that led to the accident, or that the person knew (or should have known) about that danger and had it removed or repaired.
Slip and fall accident victims can be hurt by a variety of hazards, including:
- Cracked or uneven sidewalks or walkways
- Spills that have not been cleaned up quickly or thoroughly
- Wet or slippery floors
- Poor lighting
- Stairways with uneven steps or broken railings
- Carpeting that has been ripped or is fraying
It can often be extremely difficult to prove exactly when a hazard occurred, and if you cannot demonstrate a convincing timeline, the property owner will not be held liable for your injuries. Premises liability relies on strong evidence—and unfortunately, that's not always available. Some of the best slip and fall case victories come from a tremendous error on the part of the defendant; for example, the store lost its surveillance video from that day, or their surveillance video clearly shows an employee ignoring a hazard 10 seconds before the victim slipped and fell. A good California slip and fall attorney will be able to investigate your case thoroughly and find any situations in which the defendant made a big mistake.
