How do I determine liability?
The liability of these injuries can be difficult to assess. Yet, there are several factors which determine who is at fault in these cases.
- The first determining factor in a case such as this is who exactly caused the spill, slippery surface, or dangerously placed item which was the cause of the fall. More often than not, this was the result of negligence on the part of either the property owner or an employee.
- The second determining factor is whether the property owner or employee had knowledge of the hazard, but failed to remedy it.
If you are preparing to file a trip-and-fall claim, it must be determined whether or not the proprietor was a “reasonable person” taking care of the property.
