Injured in a Slip and Fall Accident?

Latest News

We all slip or trip and fall at some point in our life. Some of those accidents happen due to our carelessness or lack of attention. However, others happen due to existence of dangerous conditions on someone else’s property. If that’s the case, the property owner might be liable. If you establish liability, you could be entitled to a compensation. This article will help you understand the basis for establishing liability in slip & fall cases.

First, a property owner will be liable, if s/he have unsafe condition(s) on their property. Wet floors, week stairway railing or a pothole on the sidewalk would generally fall under unsafe conditions category.

Further, you must show that the property owner knew or should have known about the condition, but failed to fix or warn about the danger. If a child at Publix spills his juice on the floor and after a while a customer slips and falls from the juice spill, Publix is liable. Because employees had enough time to spot the danger and prevent the accident.

Alternatively, you can show that the property owner knew of a dangerous condition, could not remedy it timely, and failed to warn of danger. For instance, if a public sidewalk is under construction, a construction company must place cones or warning signs around the area.
