SLIP AND FALLS
Slip and fall accidents can happen just about anywhere – businesses, restaurants, public places and residences, and anywhere else where property owners are obligated to keep their premises in a safe condition. Dangerously placed objects, unattended spills, tripping hazards, etc., can be contributing factors to slip and fall accidents.
Property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises in a safe condition. If the property owner had knowledge of or should have known about an unsafe condition on their premises and didn’t fix it within a reasonable amount of time, or the owner or an employee created the hazard and didn’t do anything to correct it, and an individual was injured as a result of the unsafe condition(s), the victim may have a claim against the property owner.
