Slip and Fall

This type of personal injury is really a type of premises liability, in which the plaintiff proves that a landowner, tenant or another party responsible for the condition of the property (like a property manager) caused the plaintiff to suffer a personal injury by causing or allowing a dangerous condition to exist on the property.

Common examples are a wet floor with no warning sign, a tripping hazard in the sidewalk, an unusually slippery floor, etc. Your case will center on whether your personal injury attorney can prove that the defendant knew or should have known of the dangerous condition, took reasonable steps to remedy it, and whether the condition was so open and obvious that you should have seen it and avoided it.
