Slip or Trip and Fall


Slip or trip and fall cases occur as the result of a dangerous condition on the premises of another person or business. Property owners and occupants owe their visitors a duty to maintain their property free from a foreseeable dangerous condition that is not readily apparent. Many times property owners and occupants allow customers, invitees and licensees to enter an area on their property that may have slippery floors, trip hazards, improperly maintained premises or dangerous holes. Slip or trip and falls can be the result of poor lighting, narrow stairwells, loose or missing stairwell railings, liquid or greasy substances on the floor, potholes, and uneven sidewalks or stairs, among others. These property conditions pose serious risks to the guests who have no idea of the dangerous conditions and injuries that may result. Some of these injuries can include broken bones, brain trauma and spinal cord injuries amongst others. Property owners are responsible for performing repairs and preventative maintenance in a timely manner and for warning occupants of dangerous or hazardous conditions with some form of warning. When spills are involved, business owners are required to clean up a spill within a reasonable amount of time after learning of the spill. Premises liability actions involving slip or trip and falls typically occur when pedestrians slip on spills in grocery stores, aboard cruise ships and at gas stations or trip on objects in parking lots or in warehouses.
