Determining Liability in a Slip and Fall Accident

There is a difference in having a spill on a smooth surface that causes someone to slip and gross negligence towards one’s own property that threatens the safety of others. One may be excusable while the other clearly establishes liability on the part of the property owner for anyone who gets hurt. The following are some rough guidelines that may help you determine liability in a slip and fall accident:

  • The owner or an employee of the property caused the spill or slippery surface to be present and did nothing to correct it
  • The owner or an employee of the property was aware of a dangerous condition, but did nothing to correct it
  • In a trickier situation of determining liability, the owner of an employee of the property should have known about a dangerous condition on the property, but failed to address it

The third example of liability is common, but often difficult to determine. During a trial, it will be argued by the plaintiff that common sense should have made the individual aware of and correct the situation.
