How can I prove the property owner is responsible?

Property owners have a legal duty to protect people from injuries on their property due to slips, trips, falls and other accidents. This legal responsibility is known as premises liability. If a person is injured due to a dangerous or hazardous condition, such as the accumulation of ice, snow or water, abrupt changes in flooring, poor lighting or hidden hazards, the property owner can be held responsible.

In order for a property owner to be held liable for injuries from a slip and fall accident, one of the following must be true:

  • The owner of the property or an employee knew about the hazardous condition but took no action to correct it.
  • The owner of the property or an employee should have been aware of the hazardous condition. For example, a landlord may be held responsible if a tenant is injured due to a problem in a rental property that would have been discovered during routine maintenance checks.
