To prove fault, the injured party must prove that the property owner/possessor did not act reasonably. To do this, we suggest asking questions like:
- How long did the dangerous condition exist?
- Did the person responsible for the property regularly inspect or clean the property?
- Was there a precaution that could have been taken to eliminate the dangerous condition?
It is also important to make sure the injured party acted reasonably. If the injured party was somewhere they shouldn’t have been, was acting in an unsafe manner, or ignored warning signs, it is unlikely that they will have a winning case.
