Slip and Fall Accident Cases
Slip and fall accident cases fall under the category of premises liability law, since such injuries occur due to unsafe conditions on another party's property. Owners of commercial and residential property owe their patrons or visitors a duty of care, meaning that they are responsible for keeping the property safe and posting clear warnings of any potentially hazardous conditions. For example, a business owner is responsible for keeping the premises clear of hazardous puddles or a malfunctioning escalator - or to properly alert patrons of these hazards. Individuals who slip in a spilled liquid or trip down the stairs may be eligible to file a claim against the property owner and recover financial compensation. This responsibility also applies to residential property owners. A visitor who breaks his or her wrist by tripping over a gardening tool left by the owner concealed by grass could hold the owner liable for damages.
A slip and fall accident can result in significant losses and expenses, such as medical costs (hospital and surgical bills), lost wages, and diminished earning potential, in addition to considerable pain and suffering.
