Slip And Falls
As its name suggests, this type of injuries occurs when someone slips or falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property, most of the time due to the negligence of the property owner. Slip and fall injuries can result from such problems as water, rain, ice, snow, grease or other slippery substance on the walking surface, as well as abrupt changes in flooring, poor lighting, or a hidden hazard, such as a gap or hard to see the hole in the ground.
When individual slips & falls on someone else’s property and is injured as a result of a dangerous condition on the property, the landowner or business proprietor may find himself legally responsible and may be liable for the injuries.
These types of cases could have different outcomes since both the property owner and the injured person may be held to varying degrees of responsibility for an injury. The property owner has a responsibility to keep the property safe, as each person has a duty to watch where they are going. However, there is no way a person can anticipate all hazards. Besides, there are many cases where the residential or commercial property owner or local, city, state or federal government entity is entirely at fault.
