What is a Slip and Fall Accident?

A slip and fall accident refers to any situation in which a person slips and falls or trips and falls due to a dangerous condition on someone else’s property and an injury occurs as a result. It is the responsibility of the property owner to keep their premises well-maintained and reasonably safe for others. If another person – a visitor – is injured because of unsafe conditions, the property owner might liable for what transpires because they should have been aware of the circumstances.

However, different classifications of visitors exist – invitees, licensees, and trespassers. Invitees are visitors who go to a property for business purposes (restaurant, hotel, etc.), and they are owed the highest duty of care. Licensees are visitors who to go a property for the mutual benefit of the property owner (relative, friend, etc.), and they are owed an intermediate duty of care. Trespassers are visitors who aren’t allowed on the property, and they are owed a limited duty of care.

No matter who is injured, someone is liable for what happens. There is always going to be someone in charge of a property, and their liability is dependent upon the following criteria:

  • Whether the property owner knew about the dangerous condition(s) and made no attempt to fix it
  • Whether the property owner should have known about the dangerous condition(s)
  • Whether the property owner created the dangerous condition(s)

There are also other factors that should be considered, such as how long the dangerous condition existed, whether the injured person was careless in their actions and whether the property owner’s attempt to fix the dangerous conditions were reasonable.

Defining Dangerous Conditions

As we’ve stressed earlier, slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere and any place in Pennsylvania. Injuries from these incidents can occur either indoors and outdoors. Since the Keystone State experiences all four seasons, weather can play an immense role in these types of incidents too.

Factors in common slip and fall and trip and fall accidents are snow, ice, rain, cracked sidewalks, broken floorboards, bumps or snaps in a rug or carpet, wet floors, broken stairs, items blocking walkways, unmarked hazards, and much more. There are multiple things that could cause someone to fall and injure themselves. The differencing factor is negligence.
