Liability in a Slip and Fall Case
Property owners are not responsible for all accidents that occur on their property. They are expected, however, to exercise reasonable caution for the safety of others. Property owners must take care to properly operate, supervise and manage their property to protect others from unnecessary risk of harm.
Accidents may occur in a variety of ways, including:
- Falls on Wet or Slippery Surfaces
- Falls Caused by Loose Stairway Safety Rails
- Falls Caused by Excessive Ice Buildup
- Trips Over Objects (e.g., Obstructed Walkways in A Grocery Store)
- Falls on Uneven Concrete
- Falls at Nursing Homes
- Falls at A Residential Home or Commercial Property
