Identifying “Dangerous Conditions”

In order to bring forward a successful premises liability claim in a slip and fall case, you must be able to show that a dangerous condition was present. More than that, you must be able to show that the property owner was aware of this condition or should have reasonably been aware of it. Lastly, you must show that this dangerous condition caused you to slip and fall and suffer injuries. Keep in mind, as a customer or guest, you must have been acting in a reasonable manner as well. If the dangerous condition was avoidable or you could have foreseen the risk, you may not be able to hold the property owner fully liable. That is why it is important to work with a qualified slip and fall attorney when trying to craft a claim.

The following can be used to prove that the defendant had notice of the unreasonably dangerous condition:

  • They or their employees created the condition;
  • They or their employees actually knew about the condition; or
  • The condition had existed for so long that they should have reasonably known about it.
