“Slip, trip and fall” is a name for situations where a person is injured by slipping or tripping and falling due to a dangerous or unreasonable condition on the premises. The fall can happen inside or outside of the property, and be caused by conditions such as a wet floor, bad flooring, poorly lit steps, a slippery sidewalk, a weather related situation, escalator, elevator, swimming pool or any hidden hazards.
Slip, trip and fall accidents are by far the most common type of premises liability cases in which property owners and businesses have a duty to provide a safe environment for people on their property. Accidents can result in serious injuries such as broken bones, back injuries, head trauma or a fatality.
Hazardous conditions related to premises liability claims include:
- Fluid on a floor from spills or leaking equipment
- Hazardous conditions created or not maintained by the property owner
- Improperly secured mats and rugs
- Hidden drop-offs
- Pot holes
A property owner may be liable for the injury of a visiting person under the following circumstances:
- If there is a failure to maintain the property by the owner, or owner creates a condition that may result in injury or damage to another’s property
- If the owner knows of a danger and is aware that others will come onto to his or her property, but does nothing to eliminate the hazard, erect barriers, or warn others of the condition
- If the owner’s actions – or inactions – cause damage to his or her neighbors’ property
