Slips, Trips, and Falls

THE SLIP, TRIP AND FALL

Businesses and other premises have a duty of care to those on their property. Negligence occurs when the business or premise owner knew or should have known that the condition of the property was dangerous and could possibly cause someone to slip or trip and then fall. This is especially true when someone was invited for the purpose of doing business.

Property owners should to keep their sidewalks, walkways, entryways, or stores free from slippery or wet substances. Often times the law requires that these areas leveled and not dangerous with debris or cracks. The reason behind these laws and standards is the falls often lead to very serious injuries and sometimes death.
