Protecting Victims of Slip & Fall Accidents
A person who slips and falls on another person’s unsafe property can claim losses including pain and suffering when an owner of a property knew or should have known about the dangerous conditions on their property.
A legalese term often used is “premises liability.” This means owners of property are responsible for perilous conditions if they knew (or should have known) about them or directly caused them.
Examples could be, but are not limited to, walkways and stairways with:
- Poor lighting,
- Lack of proper railings
- Spills that were not properly cleaned
- Incorrectly constructed sidewalks
- Water, ice, or snow
- Inconsistent flooring levels
- Hidden hazards
