Bradenton Slip and Fall Accident Attorney
Accidents on Another's Property
According to an area of law known as premises liability, property owners are legally obligated to adequately maintain their business, premises or property in a manner that makes it reasonably safe for the public. As one who is a "public invitee" - meaning that you are a guest, visitor or lawfully permitted invitee on another's property - you have the right to be kept safe from preventable harm and to expect safe and healthy conditions. When a premises owner fails to provide safe conditions and injury causing accidents result, they can be held liable for the injuries and damages victims suffer.
Slip, trip and fall accidents are the most common type of injury causing accident that visitors experience while on another's property. Although some of these incidents may be the result of genuine mistakes or misfortunes, many of them are caused by dangerous conditions and the negligence of others. Common causes include:
- Wet or slippery floors
- Crumbling stairs or steps
- Uneven floors or sidewalks
- Insufficient lighting
- Open holes or gaps
- Inadequate warnings about potential dangers
Any type of potential danger should be addressed by a premises owner. When they fail to do so, victims have the right to take legal recourse in order to recover compensation for their physical, emotional and / or financial damages.
