What is Premises Liability?
Slip, trip, and fall type accidents remain one of the most common causes of personal injury across the United States. These accidents fall under an area of law known as “premises liability” and have the potential to impart serious injuries to victims who experience them. Generally, a slip, trip, or fall accident is caused by a wet, slippery, or uneven surface. Typically the surface that causes a person to fall isn’t kept reasonably clean and safe for those who may travel across in it, thus the property owner or manager of the area in question can be held liable for their negligent upkeep.
In addition to slip and fall accidents, a number of other conditions fall under premises liability law. Such notable additions include:
- Negligent Security
- Unsafe Buildings
- Dog Bites and Attacks
- School Ground Injuries / Accidents
- Workplace Accidents
- Restaurant Accidents

Premises Liability Representation
Property owners and managers are required to keep their facilities, land, business, or walkways reasonably clean and safe to those who may frequent their establishments or locations. Under tort law, this is known as a “duty of care”. Managers or landowners are forbidden from allowing an unsafe condition to exist that may cause injury or wrongful death to a visitor.
In a premises liability case, negligence needs to be established in order to determine who is at fault for a slip, trip, or fall accident. Examples of negligent conditions:
- Wet, unmarked floors
- Freshly waxed or otherwise slippery floors, unmarked
- Food left on the floor for an extended period of time
- Uneven sidewalks
- Damaged carpeting
- Untethered cords
- Loose handrails
- Rubbish left on store floors
A premises liability action can be brought forth due to accidents in a variety of different locations. Of the many possible, grocery stores and other public businesses remain commonplace for people to experience these types of slip, trip, and fall accidents.
