Whether an owner is responsible for a slip and fall accident may depend on the procedures that are in place to inspect the property for dangerous conditions. Commonly gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants, etc will have these reports detailing the timetable of when portions of the property are suppose to be inspected. These reports may contain information of when employees are suppose to clean or repair the premises and whether in fact these duties were performed. Depending on what the reports states, you can either make the argument that the premises were not inspected enough for that type of business or that the defect that caused the injury should have been discovered by the inspection procedures in place.
In a slip and fall case, you can generally obtain these reports from the insurance adjuster or the owner of the property. However the owner does not have to comply with your request until a form lawsuit has been filed.
