Slips and falls can be caused by numerous factors. Most of the factors are the result of a property owner not maintaining their property properly. A claim filed due to a property owner improperly maintaining their property is called a premises liability claim. Some common premises liability claims include:
- Slippery, wet floors
- Icy parking lots
- Snowy sidewalks
- Uneven pavement
- Turned up rugs
- Deteriorating steps
- Inadequate porch, balcony, or deck railings
- Negligent building design
- Inadequate lighting
- Inadequate security
The success of your premises liability claim will hinge on a couple of key points. For you to win, you must:
- prove a hazard existed
- the property owner knew about the hazard
- the property owner failed to fix the hazard within a reasonable time.
If you can prove those three points, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries.
