Q: What happens if I can’t prove how the water got on the floor in my slip and fall case?

A: If you slip on water on a floor in a grocery store and you can’t prove that the store knew about it or an employee knew about it or that it was there for a certain period of time, that a store employee should have known about it, and there’s no possible way to bring in evidence that the water was on the floor because of a leaking refrigerating unit or a leaking roof, which would show negligence on the part of the store in maintaining the store, which itself could be negligence, if you can’t prove anything and you just slipped on it and there’s no idea by anyone as to how the liquid got to be there, then your case will be dismissed on what’s called a motion for summary judgment or a motion for directed verdict.
