Slip, trip and falls can happen anywhere – in parking lots, grocery stores, gas stations, malls and even on private property. Premises liability accidents can lead to serious physical injuries such as broken bones, spinal cord trauma, brain injuries, neck and back injuries and even wrongful death. These injuries can alter a person’s entire life and can result in the loss of employment, the loss of mobility, costly medical bills and permanent pain and suffering and disability.
Liability in a Slip, Trip & Fall Accident
Property owners generally have a responsibility to keep their premises safe and free from unnecessary hazards. A property owner can be held financially liable when someone slips and falls or trips and falls for numerous reasons, including:
- failure to remove foreign objects on the floor
- failure to repair defects on their property
- failure to warn visitors about a dangerous condition on their property
- failure to clean up water, ice or other liquids that can create a slick surface
Simply put, if a property owner fails to fix or provide ample warning about a dangerous condition on their property, they can be held responsible if a person slips and falls or trips and falls on their property and is injured.
Liability in slip, trip and fall cases is usually determined by facts specific to the case. The Pasco County Slip, Trip and Fall Attorneys at Whittel & Melton will thoroughly investigate the facts associated with your claim and evaluate the following:
- The time frame the unsafe condition existed and whether or not the owner had time to fix the problem
- If the proper steps were taken to repair the unsafe condition
- If the victim’s carelessness contributed or caused the accident
