PREMISES LIABILITY: SLIP-AND-FALLS
Slip-and-fall accidents occur when the ground or flooring is slippery or uneven, or when there are obstructions in a person’s pathway. For example, a pedestrian may trip over an uneven sidewalk, a pathway with holes in it, an unmarked curb, wrinkled carpet, or foreign objects littering the ground. When the floor or ground is slippery, it can also pose a hazard to pedestrians. Ice, snow, spilled liquids, oil and house cleaning liquids are among the substances property owners should monitor to prevent personal injury to visitors.
