Slip & Fall Practice
Plaintiffs' attorneys lose 40% of their slip and fall cases. Failure to prove a causative link between the hazard and a negligent act of the defendant is the number one reason for these high losses.
Charles Turnbow, attorney-engineering consultant on over 9,500 slip and fall cases, shows you how to prove causation (and how to efficiently screen out cases lacking it) in his highly-respected toolbook, Slip & Fall Practice:
• Analyzing the mechanics of the fall to identify the cause
• The most common cases and what they must have to win
• Documenting the dangerous condition and the negligence that caused it
• Establishing the duty of care
• Proving control of the premises
• Establishing actual or constructive notice
• Showing that the hazard caused the injury
Slip & Fall Practice is loaded with case evaluation strategies, illustrative fact patterns (with photos), discovery forms, expert witness checklists, case authorities, building code citations, model pleadings, trial preparation aids, and most important, timesaving and case-winning practice tips.
