Every building owner has a duty to keep their premises as safe as possible for visitors, whether it’s in a home or a business. Slip-and-fall accidents can result from factors such as slippery wet substances, items to trip over on the ground, or deteriorating handrails, stairs, or flooring.
If the area is not kept reasonably safe, the owner may be liable for any accidents that occur on their property. If the problem isn't fixed and a person falls and is injured as a result, the owner or manager of the property may be responsible for the injury. This is called negligence, and the injured person may be able to sue. If the owner or manager knows-or should know-that some part of the property is not safe, the problem must be fixed quickly. A slip-and-fall case can provide compensation for related medical bills, loss of wages, and even permanent disability.
