The legal principle of “premise liability” gives trip and fall accident victims a path for seeking compensation. Under premise liability, property owners are required to maintain a certain level of upkeep to ensure residents, visitors, and even trespassers are safe. If a property owner fails to remove conditions that are reasonably likely to cause a trip and fall accident, they can be held liable for this negligence. In other words, if a property owner fails to maintain safe conditions on their property and this leads to your injury, you can seek compensation from that property owner.

People who are seriously injured in trip and fall accidents suffer serious physical, emotional, and economic consequences. Trip and fall victims not only have to deal with their injuries and physical trauma, but also often experience lost wages, high medical bills, increased insurance premiums, emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment of life, and other life-altering difficulties. If you are suffering from these sorts of problems, it makes sense to seek compensation.

Of course, the details of a case can be crucial in determining liability in trip and fall injury cases, so it is important to have expert legal representation. It is up to the plaintiff and their legal team to establish the negligence and liability of the property owner. To do so, they must prove:

  • The property owner had a legal obligation or “duty of care” to the plaintiff that legally compelled them to create a safe environment.
  • The property owner breached their duty of care by not maintaining that safe environment. In other words, the property owner failed to take steps that a reasonable person would have seen as necessary for preventing trip and fall accidents (like removing ice, cleaning up spills, labeling wet floors, etc).
  • The property owner’s failure to create a safe environment caused the trip and fall accident that injured the plaintiff.
  • The plaintiff incurred damages from the trip and fall accident. Damages from a slip-and-fall accident can include medical bills, lost wages, physical pain, suffering, reduced bodily function, emotional trauma, and more.
