To use the doctrine of res ipsa loquitur, the plaintiff must prove the following three elements: 1. The plaintiff's injury was caused by an accident that would not normally have happened without negligence. 2. The thing causing the injury (in the referenced case, the barrel of flour) was within the exclusive control of the defendant. 3. The plaintiff did not provoke the accident. Just like what says in the picture, the thing speaks for itself.
