“Slip and fall accidents are largely self-explanatory, referring to situations in which someone slips/trips and falls, sustaining injury. These incidents take on legal implications when they are caused by a dangerous condition or conditions on the premises. Such accidents may happen inside or outside of a building. They may be caused by conditions such as subpar or wet flooring, inadequate lighting, or weather-related problems.
Slip and fall accidents, covered by negligence law, deal with the legal concept of premises liability. Under premises liability, property owners/manager are held to a duty of care, to ensure that their property is safe for others. The property owner must address all structural and maintenance issues that might compromise the basic safety of the structure. Weather issues (standing water/ice) also fall under this duty of care in most situations.
