Proving a slip-and-fall accident is the fault of another person, or business, can be challenging.
For one, even generally honest and upstanding people are going to be reluctant, for a lot of reasons, to admit that they are at fault when someone falls on their property. After all, they may just not want the headache of the liability involved. Likewise, the owner’s insurance companies may be reluctant to a pay a person’s slip-and-fall claim.
Moreover, these cases can present legal challenges as well. For instance, it may not always be easy to prove that a property owner knew, or should have known, about a dangerous condition on the property that contributed to a slip-and-fall. In other situations, the owner may be able to argue that the dangerous condition was simply not in the owner’s control.
