Never assume that everything will be okay, and don’t take the owner’s word for it. Often, there is a case to be made if you get injured on someone else’s property due to a negligent condition. In addition to receiving immediate medical attention, try to preserve any evidence with photographs or contact information for eye witness accounts.
Slip and Fall cases involve premises liability which is the responsibility of the owner of a property to maintain safe conditions on the property. When a defective condition is allowed to exist, the owner of the property may be liable for the resulting incident occurring on the property.
