Under the law, property owners are required to take reasonable care in the maintenance of their premises, and if hazardous conditions exist, make visitors aware of the possible dangers, so that they can avoid the risk of exposing others to the harm of a slip and fall accident. But as common as slip and fall accidents are, the laws covering them are complex, requiring many issues to be analyzed before fault can be assigned and liabilities determined.
If you were not cautioned about possible hazards, and suffered a slip and fall accident, the establishment where you suffered your slip and fall may be held liable for your injuries. First and foremost, you should seek medical help, but it is also vital to obtain as much immediate evidence as possible – witness names and numbers, as well as photographs of the area where the incident took place – as it is important to prove that the owner of the property should have known about the slip and fall hazards, but failed to correct the problem.
