Premises liability law, often referred to as slip and fall, is an area of personal injury law designed to hold property owners responsible for injuries or accidents that occur on their property as a result of negligence or unsafe conditions.
Common Causes of Premises Liability / Slip and Fall Claims
In many cases, a person assumes the blame for an injury when he or she slips and falls. However, in some situations these types of accidents are the fault of the property owner. Some common causes of premises liability lawsuits include:
- Uneven or slippery flooring or obstructions in a pathway – Property owners are obligated to ensure a safe and clear walking surface. Common causes of premises liability slips and falls include wet floors and ice slicks.
- Dog attacks – Property owners are responsible to keep animals on their premises from harming visitors.
- Assault – If assault or battery could have been prevented by adequate security, a premises liability claim may arise.
- Drowning – Owners of pools must take protective measures to eliminate the risk of accidental drowning.
