Proving fault in a slip and fall case can be difficult. First, it must be shown that the injured party did everything that a "reasonable" person would have done to be safe. We are all responsible for being aware of our surroundings and doing our best to avoid dangerous conditions. Second, it must be shown that the property owner/possessor did one of the following:
- Knew about a dangerous condition on the property and did not fix it
- Caused a dangerous condition and did not fix it
- Should have known about a dangerous condition because another "reasonable" person in their position would have known about it.
