Slip and fall injury is a term used in a personal injury case wherein a person slips or trips and suffered injuries on someone else’s property. Slip and fall usually under the category of cases known as “premises liability” claims.
Personal injury accidents can happen anywhere especially on business or commercial property. Business owners must keep their property safe and free from hazards to protect their customers from injuries.
For a business owner or property owner to be held legally responsible for the injuries suffered by someone in their establishment, there should be proof of negligence. For example, a bottle of cooking oil falls to the ground and spills into the aisle in a supermarket, but the management did not clean it up, and the next day someone slips and gets injured. The complainant can argue that it was foreseeable that the negligence of the store in failing to check in its premises and clean up the spill would lead to an accident.
