Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere that property owners are obligated to keep their premises in a safe condition. Common examples include: businesses, restaurants, public places, and residences. Often, slip and fall accidents occur as the result of tripping hazards, untended spills, or dangerously placed objects.
Property owners have a legal responsibility to keep their property in a safe condition. An individual injured as a result of an unsafe condition may have a claim against a property owner if the property owner was aware, or should have been aware, of the unsafe condition and failed to fix it in a reasonable amount of time.
