Slips, Trips and Falls
A slip, trip and fall is a frequent incident that can potentially cause significant and life-altering injuries.
The law allows an accident victim to recover from injuries caused due to the "liability" of others:
Liability attaches to the negligent person when the following prongs are met:
The party owes the victim a duty (i.e. the owner of a home owes a duty to the public to maintain the property in reasonably safe conditions);
The party violated its duty (created a dangerous condition or failed to correct a condition it knew or should have known was dangerous);
The victim sustained injuries or damages; and
The party's violation caused the victim's injuries.
