Slip & Fall Accidents & Premises Liability
A “slip and fall” accident is a type of premises liability claim, which falls under the umbrella of personal injury. Premises liability claims involve accidents that are caused by negligent building and property owners.
In a typical premises liability case, of which the most common is a slip and fall accident, an injury is caused by an unsafe or defective condition on someone’s property. Though this can include homeowners, most slip and fall cases tend to involve commercial properties.
For example, if you are shopping in a grocery store and slip and fall on a spill that an employee failed to clean up or even notice, you can potentially sue the shop’s owner for damages. This is because all property owners have a legal “duty of care” owed to anyone who enters their space.
However, just because you hurt yourself on someone’s property does not mean you automatically have a case. You must prove that the property owner was negligent in maintaining their property in a manner that was safe for their guests.
Common Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents
Most slip and fall accidents are caused because a property owner or manager failed to maintain their premises in a manner that is safe for visitors. This typically means that they either failed to fix or clean up a potentially dangerous hazard, but also includes hazards that they failed to warn against.
Here are some of the most common causes of slip and falls in Florida:
- Uneven walkways
- Electrical wires and cords
- Cluttered walkways
- Broken steps
- Malfunctioning elevators
- Dimly lit areas
- Freshly waxed or mopped surfaces
If a property owner allows conditions like the above to be present without repairing, tidying, or putting up warning signs notifying guests of the danger, they can be held liable for any injuries that result.
