Delaware County Slip And Fall Attorney
After suffering a slip and fall on someone else’s Delaware County property, you can face severe consequences. You might break a bone, suffer a traumatic head injury, or develop another lasting injury that leads to expensive medical bills and time off work.

How to Prove a Slip and Fall Case
Not all slip and falls qualify for financial compensation — to win a slip and fall lawsuit, you and your lawyer will need to establish the property owner’s negligence. You can prove negligence by establishing the presence of four key facts.
- The property owner owed you a duty to keep the property in reasonably safe condition and quickly respond to potential hazards.
- The property owner breached his or her duty of care. This can occur in a number of ways; the owner may know or should have reasonably known about a hazard and failed to take action, or the owner may directly cause the hazard.
- The property owner’s breach of care directly caused your injuries.
- You suffered damages you can collect compensation for through your lawsuit
While these elements may seem straightforward, proving a slip and fall claim is often more challenging than other types of personal injury claims. The property owner may claim you were trespassing, wearing improper shoes, or your injuries are not as serious as you claim. The owner may also say that he or she didn’t know about the hazard and should not be liable for your damages.
You need an attorney on your side to protect your right to compensation and prove the owner’s liability — and the Delaware County personal injury lawyers at Rosenbaum & Associates will advocate aggressively for your recovery during each stage of litigation.
