How does one prove liability in a slip and fall accident?

In order to prove liability in a slip and fall accident, one must show that the owner of the premises or an employee was negligent, and that such negligence caused one to slip and fall. The defendant may have spilled a liquid, or caused the surface to become slippery by some other means. The plaintiff also has to show that the owner or employee should have been aware of the dangerous condition of the surface, but did nothing to provide a remedy.

In addition, the owner or employee must have been aware of the dangerous condition because a reasonable person in charge of the property would have noticed the condition and repaired it. In determining whether the owner or employee behaved in a reasonable manner, the law focuses on whether the owner maintained the safety and cleanliness of the property.
