“Slip and Fall” is a term used for a personal injury case in which a person is injured on someone else’s property. These cases generally fall under the broader category of cases known as “Premises Liability” claims. The premises liability doctrine imposes important duties on property owners to maintain and operate their property in a safe manner for visitors, including: offices, sports arenas, gyms, shopping malls, grocery stores, movie theaters, playgrounds, community pools, public parks and apartment buildings. If you were injured on someone else’s property, you may have a valid cause of action against a business, government or residential property owner whether you are a social guest attending a party, a customer making a transaction, a vendor conducting business or even an uninvited person trespassing on the property.
Different requirements apply depending on whether the property is:
- COMMERCIAL PROPERTY
- RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY
- PUBLIC PROPERTY
For example, while a two-year Statute of Limitations generally applies to slip and fall accidents, there is also a requirement that written notice of a claim be given within 90 days to any public entity who may be sued. While there is no similar requirement as to private entities, it is essential to document the condition of the property as it existed at the time of the accident and obtain information as to when the owner knew or should have known about the condition that caused the accident.
