In a slip and fall case, the attorney has to prove that the victim was injured due to a dangerous condition, which was neglected by the property owner. The condition must be identified as a potential threat to those on the property and a condition that cannot be anticipated by a reasonable person. The second condition is important, as people are required to avoid noticeable hazards.

You can file a claim to compensate for the following:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of wages
  • Loss of benefits
  • Punitive damages
  • General damages

To prove that the property owner knew of the dangerous condition, your attorney will have to show the following:

  • The property owner created the dangerous condition;
  • The property owner knew of the condition and was negligent in failing to correct it; or
  • The condition existed for a long enough period of time that a reasonable property owner should have discovered and corrected it before the accident.
