A personal injury lawyer has two main responsibilities in a slip and fall case. They need to prove that the defendant was both at fault and negligent. To determine fault, a lawyer needs to prove that the defendant’s actions led directly or indirectly to the victim’s accident. Also, an attorney needs to prove negligence. This means that the defendant had a responsibility to maintain a certain level of safety for the area but knowingly shirked that duty. If a lawyer can prove both of these factors, their client will win their slip and fall claim.
