Slips and Falls/Premises Liability

When an actor or comedian slips or trips and falls down on screen, they usually do so for laughs. In real life, however, such falls can be anything but funny. Trips or slips and falls seriously injured hundreds of thousands of people every year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

 

  • Over 700,000 patients a year are hospitalized because of a fall injury.
  • One out of five falls causes a serious injury such as broken bones or a head injury.
  • Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
  • Each year, 2.5 million seniors are treated in emergency rooms for fall injuries.

 

There are many causes of falls, from bone and muscle weakness to vision or balance problems. But sometimes, slips, trips, falls, and other injuries are the result of property owners and others who fail to meet their responsibilities to keep their properties safe, properly maintained, and free of risks that could foreseeably lead to injuries. Uneven sidewalks, uncleared ice or debris, poor lighting, broken stairs, clutter or spills – these are a few of the hazards that property owners have a duty to prevent, remedy or warn about.

 

When visitors or others are injured as a result of such a property owner’s or manager’s failure to fulfill that duty, the injury victim may have a claim against the owner for damages based on the legal concept known as “premises liability.”
