What Is A Slip And Fall Legal Claim?

A slip-and-fall injury is just what the name suggests: someone slips and falls. These cases are a type of premises liability. The idea of premises liability is that a property owner is responsible for the safety of his or her property, and when someone gets hurt as a result of an unsafe condition on the property, the owner should be held liable for any damages that result. In order to win a slip-and-fall legal claim, it must be proven that the property owner or responsible party was negligible and did not fulfill their duty of care which led directly to your fall. In some cases, the property is rented which means you will have to consider whether the occupier or the property owner is responsible. Experienced local personal injury lawyers can help determine who is responsible and whether your claim is best filed against the property owner or the occupier.

The most common slip-and-fall scenario involves a restaurant or grocery store where some food or liquid is spilled on the floor, no one cleans it up and a customer slips on the liquid and falls. In successful claims, the restaurant owner or grocery store is held liable and has to compensate the accident victim for his or her injuries and losses.


Types Of Premises Liability Claims

Although these cases commonly occur in grocery stores or restaurants, premises liability claims can include:

  • Dangerous conditions on private properties
  • Dog bites and other animal attacks
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Dangerous stairways
  • Parking lot accidents or potholes
  • Negligent security
  • Loose, bulging, or uneven flooring
  • Poor lighting in dark areas
