Liability In The Case
One of the main parts of filing a slip and fall claim is proving the responsibility or liability. This is especially important in Baldwin Park, Bellflower, Apple Valley and Placentia. This means that you have to give proof that an individual or company where you experienced your slip and fall is liable for the injures, as well as the pain and suffering.

In the majority of these types of cases, the person who has been negligent is the homeowner and is responsible for the negligence, due to which the accident occurred. If it can be proved that the accident occurred because of the negligence of the property owner or home, then this would be the reason to file a claim and hold the defendant guilty.
An owner is generally responsible for making sure that reasonable care has been placed into making sure the property is safe and properly maintained for those who visit the property. If you’re the injury victim, you’re considered the plaintiff. And as the plaintiff it’s legally your responsibility to prove that the owner didn’t’ exercise due care.
