Slips, Trips and Falls
Because many states have laws that require landowners to maintain their property, incidents that involve injuries caused by slips, trips or falls are often classified as premises liability cases. These laws are designed to protect visitors to the property, whether public lands or those privately owned, including both commercial and private properties.
Though liability depends on the circumstances of the incident, injured parties can seek compensation for damages caused by unsafe property conditions. Because property owners are charged with the responsibility of keeping both employees and visitors safe, they can be held liable for injuries if they fail to take the proper precautions to make the area free of potential hazards.
