A slip-and-fall is just what it sounds like: an injury in which a visitor to a location, usually a place of business, is hurt. Slip-and-fall accidents happen everywhere, on commercial, residential and public property.
The principle is that the owner of a property is responsible for maintaining it to a reasonable degree so that no one is hurt. Unfortunately, owners often don't go to the expense or the trouble to do this. Here are some situations that have led to premises liability claims:
- Unsafe premises: a loose carpet someone can trip on, an uneven floor, an icy sidewalk or slippery tiles
- Inadequate security: an unmonitored parking ramp where a person can be attacked
- Workplace hazards: any area that poses danger to workers or where employees are not protected with training, warnings or proper safety equipment
