Slip and Fall Injury & Premises Liability
Slip and fall accidents fall under the legal concept of premises liability, which means that property owners and businesses have a legal obligation to practice reasonable care and maintenance of their premises to ensure it is safe for all those who enter. If a business or property owner fails to be vigilant about preventing or repairing unsafe conditions and someone is injured or killed due to this type of negligence, the owner or entity may be liable for that person’s injuries or death.
Common Causes of Slip and Fall Injuries include:
- Wet floors
- Hidden defects on walking surfaces, such as damaged stairs, or bumps and cracks in the floor
- Rugs and carpets that pose a tripping hazard
- Items placed on the floor that may pose a hazard
- Uneven or cracked sidewalks, curbs, walkways, and parking lots
- Poorly lit areas
- Ice and snow
