A slip and fall is a generic term for any injury happening when someone slips and or falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. Slip and fall injuries can result from such problems as water, rain, grease or other slippery substances on the floor or stairs, as well as poor lighting, falling merchandize, or a hidden hazard, such as uneven pavement or a hard-to-see hole or pothole.
Common Locations for Slip & Falls:
Private property, landowners, and business owners have a legal obligation to keep their premises safe for visitors, employees, customers, and anyone who sets foot on the grounds. When they do not, they may be held liable and responsible for any injuries or deaths that occur on their property.
The injured party has to prove that the landowner or business owner knew or should have known of the dangerous or hazardous condition and that they failed to either correct the problem to make it safe or warn others of the inherently dangerous condition.
Some of the common injuries can include:
