Types Of Slip-And-Fall Cases
There are many types of incidents that can make for valid slip and fall cases, including:
- Slips in standing pools of water
- Falls from holes in floors or pavement
- Falling merchandise
- Slips on accumulations of ice or snow
- Poorly maintained stairways and/or railings
Of course, there are many other factors at play. For example, if you fell in a store or other establishment that is supposed to serve the public, you are more likely to have a good case than if you were trespassing on private land.
Legally, slip and fall cases fall under the category of premises liability. Premises liability covers any case of a property owner having avoidable hazards associated with their property. Other premises liability cases can involve dog bites — anyone who owns a dog has a responsibility to make sure it doesn’t hurt people.
