An excerpt from Harris County District Court Case No. 2012-50903 stated that – This is a report on a civil lawsuit filed at the Harris County Courthouse. The details in this report come from an original complaint filed by a plaintiff. Please note, a complaint represents an accusation by a private individual, not the government. It is not an indication of guilt, and it only represents one side of the story.
Slip and fall accidents are fatal or can lead to serious injuries as broken bones, slipped discs, bulging discs, herniated discs, impinged nerves, sore backs, headaches, knee injuries, torn meniscus, chondromalacia, bone contusions, fractures and crush injuries. Slip and fall cases belong to the category of personal injury law known as premises liability.
In these type of cases, generally the Plaintiff in the lawsuit has to prove two things to prevail: (1) Liability; and (2) Damages
1. To prove liability the big issue against a store in a slip-and-fall is notice. The Plaintiff must be able to prove that the grocery was able to notice the dangerous condition.
2. You have also to prove that the store knew or should have known about the dangerous condition which caused the injury. Then you will have to establish the damages..That is the amount of money to compensate for your injury.
