The Notice Requirement. The injured victim must prove the owner or occupier of the premises knew or should have known about the dangerous condition, and failed to make it safe or warn of the danger. In some cases, this is simply impossible. In others, an experienced premises liability attorney will use the rules of discovery to obtain evidence necessary to win the case.

The Comparative Fault Doctrine is followed in California, which means slip and fall victims can be compensated even when they are partly at fault for the injury. In California, the success rate at trial for plaintiffs in slip and fall cases has increased from less than 40 percent to over 60 percent since the adoption of the comparative fault doctrine. The success rate for settling slip and fall cases without trial is higher.
