Slip and Fall


Slip and Fall

Patrons should be able to rely on property owners to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition. However, property owners are often negligent in maintaining their premises which can cause injury to unsuspecting patrons.  If you sustained injuries in a slip and fall, you may want to explore the possibility of obtaining compensation from a negligent property owner.  Compensation may include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.  Proving that a property owner was negligent can be difficult and an injured party must be able to demonstrate one of the following:

  • The property owner was responsible for the danger.
  • The property owner knew of the danger and did not give reasonable notice to invitees or promptly correct it.
  • The dangerous condition had been there long enough that it was reasonable to assume the property owner had knowledge of the dangerous condition so that failure to warn or to correct it constituted lack of ordinary care.
