The Burden Of Proof
These cases, often referred to as slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall cases, can be very difficult to prove. You must be able to provide evidence that a business owner was aware of a safety risk and failed to remedy it. For instance, if you slipped on a wet floor, evidence of dirty, stagnant water on the floor could bolster your case. If you are able to, it is a good idea to take pictures at the scene of your accident.
In defending against these cases, the opposition will often seek to avoid responsibility by arguing comparative negligence. For instance, in a case where someone has fallen on ice, they may ask, “Why didn’t you watch where you were going?” Mark Maritote has a clear understanding of the law and will fight on your behalf to hold the responsible party accountable for the damages you have suffered.
