Slip and Fall

A slip and fall may be caused as a result of the carelessness or negligence of a person in allowing some slippery, unsafe, or hazardous condition or substance exist in a store, place of business, land, or property, and it gives rise to premises liability. Broken sidewalks, steps without a warning sign, torn or loose carpeting, manholes, a change of levels with no caution sign, and uneven ground lead to slip and fall litigation. The owners of the land or property have to take reasonable care to avoid a trip and fall.
