Slip and fall accidents have been known to cause serious injuries to many individuals in the United States. Often, these slip and fall accidents are caused by a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. Dangerous conditions that cause slip and fall accidents may include slippery surfaces and substances caused by snow, water leakage or food spillage; defective or uneven flooring; improper design or maintenance of property; and poor lighting.
An injury from a fall that is caused by a hazardous condition on another’s property may entitle the victim to monetary compensation, as property owners have specific duties with respect to the maintenance of their properties. The law requires property owners to maintain their properties, give notice or warning of any hazards, and then repair the defects.
