The legal foundation of premises liability law is that property owners have an obligation to keep their property and their buildings reasonably safe. There's no such thing as a perfectly safe facility, but the law holds that property owners have a responsibility for the safety of lawful visitors.

Examples of Slip and Fall Cases
It goes without saying that there's a lot of things that can go wrong at a large facility or piece of property. Whether you're talking about a private owner or a large corporate entity, the property owner must keep walkways and stairs clear and safe. If they fail in this, innocent people can get hurt, and the property owner can rightly be held legally liable.
Our slip and fall lawyers have pursued cases related to injuries caused by:
- Water spills that aren't cleaned up quickly enough
- Snow, rain or other weather-related slip hazards
- Poorly maintained carpets that pose a tripping hazard
- Shoddy handrails along a staircase
This isn't an exhaustive list, of course. But it does provide you with a sense of the dangers that can exist at a privately owned facility. Keeping a building or piece of property safe isn't easy, but it's an owner's responsibility. And our slip and fall lawyers hold negligent property owners responsible for their mistakes.
