Slip and fall accidents can occur in a variety of circumstances. Some of these are simply accidents—a loss of balance or unexpected ice on the front porch, for example. However, many slip and fall accidents could have been prevented if the location of the accident had been properly maintained.
Slip and Fall Accidents Due to Negligence
Property and business owners have an obligation to be sure their property is safe. If you are injured because a business owner failed to properly maintain his property, or failed to provide warning signs for temporarily dangerous conditions, he could be found liable for your injuries. This is often referred to as a premises liability case.
For example, if a floor is being cleaned and is currently wet, a business owner should place a sign indicating that the floor is slippery. If a sign is not supplied, and you fall and are hurt, the business owner could be found negligent.
