Proving Fault in Slip & Fall Accidents
If you were hurt in a slip and fall incident caused by the negligence of the property manager or owner, you are required to provide evidence to demonstrate that the defendant was negligent.
In order to recover compensation for slip and fall injuries, you must be able to prove:
- The property owner/manager created the dangerous condition
- They knew of the dangers and failed to take action to correct it, or failed to warn guests of the danger
- The condition had existed long enough that the owner/manager should have known about it
Our personal injury team in Louisville can thoroughly examine all facets of your case to look for the required evidence, including reviewing security footage, searching for potential building code violations, sifting through maintenance records, and more. We put in the time and resources in order to help our clients recover the compensation they need.
