Negligent Property Owners Can Cause Slips and Falls
Generally speaking, slip-and-fall compensation is available if you are injured on another’s property as a result of their negligence. If you file a lawsuit, the property owner can be held legally responsible if it can be proven they caused or knew about hazardous conditions. Further, if the property owner knew about potential danger and didn’t take steps to remedy it, despite having time to do so, you can also take legal action. It’s expected that owners regularly monitor their property for hazardous conditions that could result in injury. Thus, owners can also be held responsible for injury if it can be shown that they should have known about the danger.
