Who Can Be Liable for a Slip-and-Fall?

When you suffer injuries from a slip-and-fall accident, you may even try to blame yourself. In reality, it’s possible that someone else’s careless attitude toward your safety is the real culprit.

Property owners owe visitors to their residences or establishments a duty of care. When their negligence or failure to warn you about existing dangers on their property causes your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. Read on to discover who can be liable for a slip-and-fall. 

Determining Liability for Slip-and-Fall cases

Property owners owe a duty of care to visitors to their property. Basically, this means that they can be held liable for civil damages payable to the injured party when their own negligence leads to your injuries. 

Some examples of property owners that can be held liable when you suffer a slip-and-fall include: 

  • Business Owners – If you slip-and-fall on a wet floor at a local grocery store, the business could be the hook for your damages when they failed to take action to prevent the accident from occurring. For this reason, it’s common to see wet floor signs in commercial properties where a slip is possible from a damp or wet floor. 
  • Homeowners – If you slip-and-fall while at a private residence, they may be liable to pay your damages through their homeowners insurance policy
  • Landlords – If you slip-and-fall in your rented apartment due to the carelessness of the property owner, you may be able to hold them liable.
