Determining Liability in Your Slip & Fall Accident
Liability, or who should be held responsible in your claim, in slip, trip, and fall cases, usually fall on the negligent property owner. This includes owners of large commercial spaces, such as supermarkets or retail stores; business owners, when the accident occurs at work; government entities, when the accident occurred on a municipal property like a park; or residential property owners or private property.
In any case, owners are responsible for ensuring their property is well maintained and free from unnecessary hazards. In the case of on-the-job accidents, property managers have a duty to provide proper safety precautions, including warning signs and safety training, especially when the job entails potential dangers inherent in an employee’s everyday duties.
Holding negligent property owners accountable for their actions will help you seek the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. It also serves as a preventative measure against similar incidents happening to others in the future. By taking legal action, property owners will be forced to confront the hazards that led to your injury and fix the problems to prevent other accidents.
