Slip and Fall
What is a slip and fall injury?
Slip and fall injuries are part of the larger body of law known as personal injury law. A slip and fall injury is an injury which occurs when someone slips, trips, or falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. It includes falls as a result of water, ice, or snow, as well as abrupt changes in flooring, poor lighting, or a hidden hazard, such as a gap, crack, or hard to see hole in the ground, sidewalk, road, floor, or stairs.
When a slip and fall injury occurs it may the fault of the property owner, and therefore, the owner’s responsibility to compensate the victim for injuries such as medical expenses, emotional pain and suffering, lost wages, and the like. For the owner of the property to be responsible for the injury, certain conditions must be met. The owner or the owner’s employee must have caused the condition resulting in the injury, they were aware of the condition, and a reasonable person would or should have known about the condition and eliminated it.
