“Slip and fall” is a legal term for personal injury cases that arise when a person slips and falls as a result of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property. Have you suffered a serious slip-and-fall injury on unsafe private, public or commercial property? Businesses and property owners alike have a responsibility to those who have to walk on or around their property. Specifically, they have a duty to maintain their premises in a safe condition, free of hazards to customers, patrons, and guests. In legal terms, this is known as premises liability. Slip and fall cases stem from a variety of different types of hazards. Below is just a brief list of objects or conditions that often give rise to premises liability claims:
Wet or slippery floors
Rain, ice, or snow that is not cleared within a reasonable time after a storm
Sidewalks that are uneven or have hidden gaps
Flooring that is not level
Unmarked wells or holes in the ground
Walkways lacking warning signs
Buildings with entrances and exits that lack handicapped access
You should not have to risk injury because of another’s failure to maintain a safe premises. Don’t take your slip-and-fall injury lightly.
