Slip, trip, and fall type accidents remain one of the most common causes of personal injury across the United States. These accidents fall under an area of law known as “premises liability” and have the potential to impart serious injuries to victims who experience them. Generally a slip, trip, or fall accident is caused by a wet, slippery, or uneven surface. Typically the surface that causes a person to fall isn’t kept reasonably clean and safe for those who may travel across in it, thus the property owner or manager of the area in question can be held liable for their negligent upkeep.
In addition to slip and fall accidents, a number of other conditions fall under premises liability law. Such notable additions include:
- Negligent Security
- Unsafe Buildings
- Dog Bites and Attacks
- School Ground Injuries / Accidents
- Workplace Accidents
- Restaurant Accidents
