Slip, Trip & Fall

Slip, Trip & Fall 2017-09-04T13:30:00+00:00

All property owners, residential and commercial, have the duty to ensure safe environments for visitors. If you have been harmed by a hazardous condition on another’s property, whether a sidewalk, personal residence, restaurant, mall, hotel, office building, school, park, theater, museum or other property, you may be eligible to file a premises liability claim and receive compensation for your injury.

Lawsuits based on “slip and fall” injuries are among the most common types of premises liability claims. These injuries commonly occur due to uneven or slippery surfaces, but can also be the result of:

  • crumbling stairs
  • wet floors
  • exposed electrical wiring
  • raised flooring
  • falling debris
  • obstructed pathways
  • poorly lit walkways

Liability in Slip and Fall Cases

Although premises liability law seeks to protect parties who are injured as the result of the property owner’s negligence, it is often difficult to prove liability. For your claim to be successful, you must show that the property owner knew about the hazardous situation (or reasonably should have known about it) and failed to correct it in a timely manner, and that the action or inaction of the property owner caused the condition which led to your injury.

Proving the case may be especially difficult if the owner corrected the hazardous condition before evidence was collected.  To further complicate the analysis, many other factors must be considered in assessing liability. For example, the duty of care owed to a visitor may vary depending on the reason the visitor was on the property, and whether or not the property owner had explicitly or implicitly invited him or her onto the property.
