Slip and fall facts
The most common type of premises liability injury results from a slip and fall accident. The law protects victims of slip and fall accidents whether they are invitees or licensees. An invitee is someone who is invited onto land open to the general public, whether for business purposes, such as a shopper in a grocery store or in another public area like a park or community center. A licensee is someone allowed to visit property that is not open to the general public, such as a houseguest visiting a friend’s private home. The law is so serious about holding landowners accountable for injuries suffered on their premises that in certain cases it may even compensate trespassers or those who are considered partly at fault for their own injuries.
Do I deserve compensation?
Courts generally ask the following questions in determining whether a victim deserves compensation from a landowner for an injury sustained on the landowner’s property:
Was there an unreasonable risk of harm on the land?
Did the landowner know or should they reasonably have known about the harm?
Did the landowner know or should they reasonably have known that the visitor would not appreciate the danger?
Did the landowner fail to take ordinary measures of care to protect the visitor?
