SLIP & FALL ACCIDENTS
When a slip and fall accident occurs, the responsibility for the injury often lies with the owner or manager of the premises. Property owners have a legal obligation to provide a safe environment for guests and customers, and if they fail to do so then they can be held liable for any injuries that result. This includes ensuring that there are no hazardous conditions on their property that could cause someone to trip or slip, such as wet floors, cluttered walkways, or uneven surfaces. Businesses must also warn visitors of any potential dangers on their property; this is typically done through signs or other notices alerting them of slippery floors, uneven surfaces, and other hazards.
