Is Another Party Legally Responsible?
Slips and falls sometimes happen because the injured person was simply not paying attention, but oftentimes, these types of accidents occur because of unsafe conditions on another's property that could have been otherwise prevented. It is important to note that a property owner or landlord is only responsible for keeping his or her property reasonably safe. However, if the owner failed to properly react to a hazard in a timely manner, he or she may assume liability for the resulting injuries or accidents.
Determining whether a property owner or landlord was negligent and caused a slip-and-fall accident will depend on the following evidence:
- Photographs or video of the dangerous property condition
- Injuries attributed to the fall
- Proving that the property owner had notice of the hazard
- Incident reports
- Eyewitness testimony
An attorney with ample experience representing slip-and-fall cases will be able to investigate the circumstances of your accident and navigate the unique nuances of premises liability laws to build a strong case.
What are the Common Causes of Slip-and-Fall Accidents
There are many dangerous conditions that can cause a slip-and-fall injury, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Wet, slippery floors
- Broken steps or handrails
- Poor lighting
- Cluttered walkways
- Exposed cords
- Lack of warning signs
The property owner is not necessarily responsible for slip-and-fall accidents that result from unsafe conditions that are open and obvious. However, you may have a valid claim if the property owner caused the condition or allowed it to persist without providing adequate warning.
