Slip And Fall Injuries
Full Video Transcript
Slip and fall injuries are incredibly common and can result in serious injuries. A land or business owner has the duty to exercise reasonable care to protect individuals who are invited on the premises from dangerous conditions. While the owner is not required to guarantee the safety of others, they are required to take certain reasonable precautions. The mere existence of a dangerous condition on the premises that may cause someone to slip, fall and injure themselves may not be enough to establish liability unless it would have been reasonable to have discovered the situation. Also, owners have the duty to exercise ordinary care in maintaining the premises and keeping them reasonably safe, so that injuries won't normally occur. If you have been injured in a slip and fall on someone else's property, consult with an experienced personal injury attorney, who will explain the law and your legal rights.
