How to Prove a Sidewalk Fall Claim
- The property owner (government) owed you a duty of care. To be owed a duty of care, you must be a legal guest (an invitee or licensee) on a house, not a trespasser.
- By failing to check the sidewalk for flaws, patch defects, or warn guests of potential dangers, the property owner violated an obligation.
- Your slip and fall crash was caused by the property owner’s violation of duties. There must be an unmistakable connection between the owner’s incompetence and your fall.
- You sustained compensable injuries as a result of the fall. Finally, you must demonstrate that you have suffered compensable fall-related losses, such as hospital costs and lost earnings.
