Personal injury claims in which a person slips or trips on someone else’s property is referred to as a “Slip and fall” claim. These claims fall under the “premises liability” category of claims. Slip and falls can occur in commercial, public, or residential properties and the owner or possessor of the property may be held responsible for failing to maintain a safe premises if someone is injured while visiting their property.
There are many dangerous conditions that can cause someone to slip, trip or fall and sustain injuries, such as wet floors, uneven surfaces, poor lighting, etc.
It is a personal injury attorney’s job to prove that their client was injured as a result of an “unreasonable dangerous condition”, that the condition was not “open and obvious” and that the injured party could not have anticipated the accident. In order to establish that the property owner is liable, the attorney must prove that the owner or possessor created the dangerous condition; knew that the condition existed and failed to attend to it; or that the condition existed for such a length of time that the owner or possessor should have been aware of it and corrected it.
