“Slip and fall” is a legal term for personal injury cases that arise when a person slips and falls as a result of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property. Property owners have a duty to maintain their premises in a safe condition, free of hazards to patrons and guests. In legal terms, this is known as premises liability.

Slip and fall cases stem from a variety of different types of hazards, including:

  • Carpeting that is in disrepair
  • Flooring that is not level
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Wet or slippery floor
  • Unmarked wells or holes in the ground
  • Sidewalks that are uneven or have hidden gaps

Slip and fall cases are litigated under the legal theory of negligence. The premises liability attorney at Grazi & Gianino must prove the property owner negligently created the hazardous condition or knew (or should have known) about the hazard and failed to have it removed or repaired.
