Slip and fall cases are one of the most difficult types of cases to handle. This is because there is some skepticism about slip and fall cases with the public. It also difficult to prove how the business is at fault in a slip and fall case. Often times somebody will slip on some spilled water on the floor or some food left on the floor. These things are usually left there by other customers, so it is very difficult to show that the business is at fault for these accidents. One way to establish fault is to show that the food or water has been left there for a long time. It can be difficult to gather evidence showing this but there are a couple of ways such as witness statements or other means. Another way is if the business itself is responsible for leaving the substance on the floor. It is much easier to establish fault in these circumstances, and as a result these cases are more likely to end with a bigger settlement or prevail at trial. So it is important to keep in mind that every time someone slips and falls at a business there is not automatically a valid claim against the business. However, a case can often be made with a strong showing of evidence. Because of the difficulty of these cases it is important to have an experienced attorney handle the case.
