The legal term for slip-and-fall accidents is premises liability suits. If you own property that poses unreasonable danger to people who visit the premises, you are liable for the injuries that result.
Slip-and-falls can be extremely serious, resulting in catastrophic brain injury or even death. Common examples include:
The law says that we are responsible for the property we own and that we must make our premises reasonably safe, removing or repairing obvious hazards. When owners fail to meet this standard, they are liable for the medical bills you incur, plus time lost from work and other damages.
