Slip and Fall Injury
When a person slips and falls on your premises resulting in personal injuries, this is termed “slip and fall”. The exact circumstances of this type of accident are critical in determining who may be legally responsible for any injuries. For instance, if you are a guest on another person’s property, the owner or the person occupying the property has a responsibility to keep the premises reasonably safe (duty of care), and to warn visitors of any potential dangers. If you are on the premises for business purposes this duty of care may actually be extended. Of course, if you are not invited or are a trespasser, the owner or occupier of the property may not owe you the same duty of care as if you were an invited guest. Still the higher standard of care for trespassers may be enforced when the trespasser is a child.
