Slip and Fall Lawyers Look for Negligence Caused by the Other PartySlip and fall lawyers have to determine whether the cause of your accident and injuries were the result of negligence caused by the other party. For example, if you and other people informed a business owner of an uneven sidewalk and made them aware of the problem, you could have grounds for a personal injury case. Since the business owner was made aware of the problem and if they failed to take any steps to resolve and correct the issue, they might be found negligent. Even if you did not tell them about the problem and tripped and fell down, you can still have a case as long as they had prior knowledge of the problem and failed to correct it.
