Slip and fall accidents are pretty random. After all, most people avoid hazardous property conditions if they notice them in time. The problems arise when victims don’t notice a hazard, and then they are injured as a result. These circumstances can give rise to what is known as a premises liability claim. So, how do victims prove these types of claims?

First and foremost, it is important to prove that the property owner could have prevented the accident. Could the property owner have been more careful about the state of the property? For instance, in winter weather, should the property owner have known that icy conditions were developing and taken steps to prevent people from falling on the property? If a property owner could have – and should have – taken steps to prevent the hazardous condition from posing a problem, this is a key part of a premises liability lawsuit.

Next, it can be important to show that the property owner actually knew about the problem on the property, and did not take steps to prevent the issue from become a problem for visitors or guests on the property. Proving this type of negligence shows that the property owner had a disregard for the potential danger on the property.

Lastly, plaintiffs in a premises liability lawsuit will need to prove that they suffered an injury in the accident. Plaintiffs can use medical bills, photographs of the injuries and testimony about the effect of the injury on their lives to prove that the accident on the defendant’s property actually resulted in an injury.
