Frequently asked questions

What is a slip & fall accident?


Slip and fall describes the type of injury suffered on someone else’s property as a result of a defect, slippery substance or other dangerous condition. These injuries commonly occur at supermarkets and restaurants and are due to food on the floor. They can also occur when inadequate steps are taken to remove ice and snow from sidewalks, driveways, and parking lots.




What constitutes “premises liability”?


Generally, premises liability refers to the body of law, which holds a landowner and/or possessor of real property liable for injuries to others who suffer injury on their property. Typically, a premises liability lawsuit often arisesfrom the property owner’s or occupant’s failure to maintain the property in a safe condition or failure to correct a dangerous condition on their property, which they know about or upon reasonable inspection, should have known about.




Who is responsible for a slip and fall accident? The owner or the person injured?


The general rule of law is that the owner or operator of the premises has a duty to keep the premises in reasonably safe conditionor at least warn individuals of dangerous conditions of which the owner or possessor of the land either caused, knew about or should have known about.
