Slip and Fall

Property owners are legally responsible for maintaining reasonably safe conditions on their property. Inadequate lighting, damaged flooring, and leaking water from appliances are hazards that could cause someone to slip, trip, or fall resulting in an injury. Negligence is determined based on whether the property owner acted reasonably to prevent the accident or if the property owner neglected a known condition, failed to correct, or created the condition.
