Oftentimes, people slip and fall due to a dangerous condition on a property that may have been caused by the owner’s negligence. The owner’s negligence may cause dangerous conditions such as a wet floors, inadequate lighting, objects on the floor, puddles, broken stairs, hidden objects or various other obstacles on the floor that may cause one to fall. Slip and fall cases are often difficult to prove because the law requires you to prove that the owner of the property either created the dangerous condition or that they knew about it or reasonably should have known about it and knew that it posed a danger before the accident. Property owners will consistently deny that they knew about the dangerous condition or knew that it posed a hazard.
