Slip and fall accidents are the most common claims in premises liability lawsuits. Premises liability law involves the legal responsibility of owners and occupiers of property for mishaps experienced by persons on the property and the resulting injuries. One of the most common causes of such injuries is a trip or slip and fall, such as on an icy sidewalk, a loose or uneven stair tread, or a piece of debris or spilled liquid on the floor.
When property owners fail to keep their buildings, parking lots and walkways safe and secure, they create a risk of injury. In some situations, landlords and property owners must maintain safety standards based on codes set forth by the local government. Failing to do so can make them responsible for the injuries you suffer as a result of violations of these safety standards. As a customer in a store or shopping center, a resident in a building, or a pedestrian on the street, you are at risk everyday of becoming injured as a result of a property owner's negligence.
