Proving the Owner's Negligence

A victim of a slip and fall must prove that the owner (1) created the hazard, (2) failed to fix a recurring problem, (3) had actual notice such as a customer or tenant complaint, (4) or had constructive notice [should have known of the problem through reasonable care and maintenance]. We act quickly to document the dangerous condition through photos or eyewitness statements. We also use experts, as necessary, to identify code violations or reconstruct accidents: One client tripped at a restaurant over an unexpected rise in the floor, and required metal rods in repairing her broken leg. Jim Cupero got a restaurant employee to acknowledge in a deposition that her manager routinely warned people to watch their step at that spot.
