It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure their property is maintained in a condition that is reasonably safe for visitors. Slip and fall accidents are premises liability cases, which means that the victim must be able to prove that a property owner's negligence was the cause of their accident. These types of claims can be especially complicated, because the victim must also be able to show that their own carelessness was not the cause of the accident.

Determining Liability in a Slip & Fall Accident

When filing a slip and fall accident, you must be able to prove that the property owner was liable for the resulting injuries. This means that one of the following must be true:

  • An employee or owner must have caused the spill, rough patch, or dangerous / slippery surface.
  • An employee or owner must have been aware of the dangerous surface, but did nothing to fix it.
  • An employee or owner should have known about the dangerous surface, because a "reasonable" person taking care of the property would have discovered the removed the danger.

There are certain things that people may try to blame for their injuries that are actually put on the ground for a purpose—not to lead to injury. For example, a drainage grate is built in the ground for a particular purpose, and individuals should be mindful of such items. On the other hand, there are causes of slip and fall accidents that individuals have no control of, and a property owner may be found liable.

Common causes of slip and fall accidents are:

  • Wet or slippery floor
  • Defective stairs
  • Rough patches of ground
