Property owners have an obligation to protect people on to their property. This duty can include making routine
inspections, repairing unsafe conditions and posting warnings about dangers. Property owners may be held liable not only for known dangers, but also for unsafe conditions that the property owner should have known existed.
A slip and fall accident is a particular type of premises liability case, where falls on unsafe property result in injuries. Our skilled lawyers at Melat, Pressman & Higbie, LLP have extensive experience evaluating liability in these types of cases.
Liability for slip and fall accidents generally rests with the property owner, owner of a business, or homeowner. Multiple parties may sometimes be held liable, especially in commercial cases where the property owner, the tenant property management company all share responsibility.
Maintaining safe conditions and warning about hazards is the owner's responsibility. Unsafe conditions often include:
