Slip and Fall cases are a modality of Premise Liability. There are several factors that come into play in a slip and fall case: Was the fall foreseeable? Is there anything the property owner could have done to prevent the fall? Such is the cases in a store where there was a slippery substance on the floor. How long was the floor wet or slippery? Did the store have an employee performing rounds to ensure the premises were safe for visitors? Was the injured person in an area that is off-limits to guests?
The court will also consider whether there was signage warning of potential dangers, such as a “Wet Floor”, “Uneven Ground”, or ongoing “Construction/Remodeling” caution signs.
