A "slip and fall" is the common name for an injury which occurs when someone slips, trips or falls as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on another's property.
If you are on another person's property and injure yourself as a result of a dangerous condition on the property, the landowner or business proprietor may be liable for your injuries. If you are a property owner and someone is injured on your property, you may find yourself legally responsible for injuries. Both parties should seek the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
Property owners are responsible for injuries that occur as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on their property. These include injuries that result from a dangerous or hazardous condition, which the owner knew about, or should have known about. The hazard may be obvious (such as a leaking pipe) or hidden (like a dry rot in the sub floor). The hazard could be temporary (like a liquid spill in a store aisle).
In general, an owner will be considered to have knowledge of a dangerous or hazardous condition if it is permanent in nature, since the owner knew, or should have known, about the condition before the incident occurs.
In the case of temporary conditions (like a liquid spill), the length of time that the condition existed before the incident occurred has legal significance.
