What Is Premises Liability?

Slip and fall claims are a type of premises liability action. The term refers to a property owner’s duty to keep the premises safe and prevent personal injury to those who enter.

Slip and fall accidents can result from a number of causes, including:

  • Slippery or oily floors
  • Raised or worn carpeting
  • Poor or broken lighting
  • Defective escalators or elevators
  • Uneven stairs
  • Broken or uneven pavement
  • Holes or depressions

Slips, trips, and falls can occur in a number of locations, including shopping centers, restaurants, hotels, office buildings, and recreational facilities. Injuries can range from broken ankles and knee strains to spinal cord damage and head trauma.

Proving Negligence in a Slip & Fall Accident

To bring a successful personal injury claim, you must show that your injury was caused by an unsafe condition and that the property owner’s negligence is to blame. If you can prove that the property owner’s negligence caused your slip and fall injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.

To prove negligence, you must demonstrate that the property owner knew of the dangerous condition or hazard, or should have known of the condition, and failed to fix it within a reasonable period of time. In many cases, liability comes down to whether or not the owner took reasonable action to keep the property safe.

Slip and fall cases can be difficult to prove. Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. You can also take steps to help your claim, such as:

  • Record witness information: Write down the names, phone numbers, and addresses of anyone who saw you slip and fall. If you spoke with the property owner, manager, or staff after the incident, be sure to record their contact information as well.
  • Take pictures of the scene: Property owners often work quickly to fix a defect, particularly if they learn someone has been injured. Other conditions, such as a wet floor, dissipate over time. If you are able to use your cell phone to take pictures, be sure to immediately capture the defect or condition that caused the fall, whether it is a puddle of water or a broken stair.
  • Keep your receipts: If you were injured at a store, restaurant, or another retail establishment, your receipts document the time and date of the fall.
