SLIP AND FALL

When someone enters your property, they have a reasonable expectation of not getting injured. This means that you, as a property owner (or non-owner resident), are responsible for maintaining a relatively safe environment.

P remises liability is an area of law that requires property and business owners to provide safe and healthy conditions to guests and visitors. That means, if a person slips, trips or falls as a result of a dangerous condition on another person’s property, the land owner or business owner maybe responsible for the injuries suffered by the victim. Slip and falls may occur as a result of a slippery substance such as water, grease, food, sudden changes in flooring, poor lighting, or a hidden hazard. Premises owners are also required to ensure that their property is free from preventable harm. One of the most common factors that lead to personal injury on another's property is negligent or insufficient security. In fact, negligent security accounts for a large percentage of all premises liability claims that occur at public businesses or facilities.

Given the widespread number of premises liability instances, you should not hesitate to take legal action if you are suffering from an accident of this nature. When you work with our firm you can feel confident in the measures being taken on behalf of securing you the compensation that you rightfully deserve. Failures to provide adequate security can result in third party altercations such as rape, sexual assault, robbery and battery, and these are situations in which we are primed and ready to help. Some of the most common places where these acts can occur include:

  • Hotels and motels
  • Apartment complexes
  • Shopping malls
  • Parking lots
  • Nightclubs and bars
  • Government property
  • Amusement parks
  • Sports stadiums

Premises owners are required to provide a safe environment. While certain properties, such as amusement parks and sports stadiums, typically have a duty to protect guests, third party assaults on other properties require creative and talented legal minds that can clearly establish duty, negligence and liability. In order for victims to recover damages, they must prove that premises owners had sufficient and reasonable cause to foresee the crimes and assaults that took place. Prior criminal acts and police reports at the facility in question are a strong indication that premises owners failed to address potential dangers.
