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/trip 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:

  • Homeowners
  • Commercial property owners
  • Lessees of a commercial property
  • Municipalities

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 or trip 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 or tripped 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.
