Slip, trip and fall accidents affect millions of Americans every year
Many falls result in serious injury and can be catastrophic especially in older people. When a fall is caused by a dangerous condition, hazard or defect on a property the owner can be liable for injuries under premises liability law. Business owners have a duty to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition for its visitors. This includes the duty to inspect their properties for dangerous conditions that could cause an accident and injury.
Slip, trip and fall accidents can be the result of a myriad of dangerous conditions. For example, an accident may be caused by a malfunctioning door; a broken up sidewalk; unsafe stacked merchandise; food or liquid left on a floor; ice and snow on walkways and parking lots; missing handrails; just to name a few.
