What is a Premise Liability Case or a ‘SLIP AND FALL’?
When someone trips and falls or slips and falls, “slip and fall” is a generic term for an injury as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. Premise Liability is the body of law that state that a property owner responsible for injuries suffered on their property. It includes falls as a result of standing water, wet floors, ice or uncleared snow, as well as unmarked changes in flooring, poor lighting, or a hidden hazard, such as a gap or hard to see hole in the ground. If you are on someone else’s property and are injured as a result of a dangerous condition on the property, the land owner or business proprietor may be liable for your injuries.
