Tavares, FL Construction Defect Accident Injury and Wrongful Death Attorney

A slip and fall or slip, trip and fall is a term used to describe a personal injury case where an injured party slipped and fell or tripped and fell on someone else’s property which resulted in their injuries. On a broader scale, a slip, trip and fall accident usually falls under the category of premises liability because the accident usually occurs on a corporations or someone else’s premises or property and the person in possession of the property could be held legally responsible.

Numerous conditions can cause a person to slip, trip or fall on someone else’s property. These accidents can occur inside buildings when there is poor lighting, narrow stairwells, wet floors, torn carpets and even poorly functioning escalators. Slip, trip and falls can occur outside on cracked or broken public sidewalks, wet indoor tile used in an outdoor area, or even because of unrepaired potholes in a parking lot.

Proving who is legally responsible for your injury can be difficult to prove in slip, trip and fall accidents. Every case involving premises liability is unique and usually revolves around whether the owner of the property acted carefully so that slipping and tripping would be unlikely to happen, and whether you were careful to avoid the conditions that caused your slip, trip or fall.

Generally, in all premises liability cases it must be proved that a condition remained due to negligence, and it was the reason behind your slip, trip or fall and that the property owner was aware of or even should have been aware of the peril. The dangerous condition must present an unreasonable risk to the visitor of the property. Keeping in tune with this requirement, it is implied that individuals must be conscious of, and act reasonably to their surroundings.

In order for a property owner to be held liable for a slip, trip and fall, it must be shown that his or her negligence could predictably create a dangerous condition. If a bottle of soda fell in an aisle in a grocery store and the spill was not cleaned up by the following day, and someone slipped, tripped or fell and sustained injuries, then it could be argued that the grocery store’s negligence was foreseeable and responsible for not cleaning up the spill in a timely fashion.

In some cases, negligence can be proved by a property owner violating specific statutes. Building codes are in place as guidelines to property owners as to where certain features should be installed. If you were injured because a property owner failed to follow appropriate building structure codes, you could have a valid claim against the building owner.
