Liability for Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and falls can happen anywhere, though they often happen in commercial establishments or large facilities. Some common locations of slip and falls include:
- Nursing homes
- Large retail stores (“big box stores”)
- Shopping malls
- Theme parks
- Restaurants or bars
All of these businesses have the legal duty to ensure their premises are in reasonably safe condition for patrons at all times. This means that companies should conduct regular inspections and address any slip and fall hazards as soon as possible. The following are only some examples of slip and fall hazards:
- Liquid spills that are not cleaned up
- Items or debris left on the floor
- Flooring or carpet that is overly worn or slippery
- Ramps with inadequate handrails
- Not warning patrons about wet floors
If a hazard causes your slip and fall, the company should be fully responsible for all medical bills, lost income, and other losses stemming from your injuries.
