How Premises Liability Affects Slip & Fall Cases
When someone is injured on someone else's property as a result of a
dangerous or hazardous condition, the state's laws of premises liability
go into effect. Personal injury cases as a whole hinge on negligence and
premises liability cases are no exception.
Every year, thousands of men, women and children are injured in slip and
fall accidents – some very seriously or even fatally. While property
owners are not liable in every case, they are responsible for keeping
up their property and maintaining the grounds.
If it can be shown that a property owner was careless or negligent in maintaining
their premises and a dangerous condition caused you undue harm, you may
have a valid claim. The following are some examples of potentially liable parties:
- Commercial property owners
- Lessees of a commercial property
Who is liable for your injuries?
A very important question in a slip and fall accident case is, who is liable?
The answer often depends on the nature of your claim and where the accident
occurred. For example, if your slip occurred due to a structural issue
with the property such as a leaky ceiling that dripped water onto the
floor, that is usually the landlord's fault.
If you slipped on a freshly waxed floor at a hospital, then your claim
would be against the hospital. In any slip and fall case, it will be necessary
to prove negligence, and who knew or should have reasonably known that
the dangerous condition existed, and failed to rectify the situation.
The longer the dangerous situation was present, the longer the defendant
should have known about and remedied the problem.
