Legal Aspects Of Slip And Fall In Inland Empire
In a slip and fall case, liability refers to who is responsible for the accident. Property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises safe and free from hazards. If a property owner fails to maintain their property and you are injured, they may be held liable for your damages. However, liability is not always clear-cut. In some cases, the injured party may have contributed to the accident. For example, if you were running in a store and slipped on a wet floor, you may be found partially at fault for the accident. This is known as comparative negligence and can affect the compensation you are entitled to.
To prove negligence, you must establish that:
- The property owner had a duty to maintain their property
- They breached that responsibility
- Their breach caused your injuries
This can be a complex legal process, and it is crucial to have an experienced slip-and-fall attorney on your side.
