Default Law question

Scenario: You invite your friend to visit your house where you have just cleaned but left some liquid detergent near the stair. He came up and slipped on the detergent, fell down good, unconscious and broke his spine. You clean up and call 911, they brought him to hospital. Paralyzed for life.

Now he sues you to pay his medical bills and negligence. You claim he fell by himself on a dry floor. Who'll win?

It's been a while since I took my Business Law class and it deals with lawsuits such as this.

I would assume he wins. He has to know that detergent is there and you have to warn him what can possibly happen? If he said he didn't know, you are at fault. That's why restaurants have those yellow signs waring of slippery floor.

You have to tell him. By you cleaning it up, you will lose the case.

Well there's no witness and I'd just say that he fell by himself.

in real life; eventually your home owner's insurance would settle the claim.


in legal theory; too lazy to look up premises liability rules.

wouldn’t forensics be able to tell pretty easily that detergent had soaked into parts of his clothes from when he lay on the ground?
