Slip and fall myths, Part 1

Premises liability or "slip and falls," get a bad reputation and are thus subject to a series of unfortunate myths. This post will go over some of these myths so, hopefully, you don't fall prey to any of them. Premises liability refers to the responsibility that property owners bear when a person on their property is injured due to their negligence. It is steeped in simple logic; the landowner is the person best placed to discover and prevent dangers. Therefore the burden is on the landowner if a visitor is injured.

A very common myth is that it was an accident. Therefore, you don't have a case. Whether or not an incident is an "accident" is irrelevant. There are plenty of accidents, but it does not alleviate someone's burden from doing what is reasonable to prevent injuries.

Another common myth is when signs are present. A sign is a not a magical liability shield that protects all landowners from liability. Signs only serve to warn patrons, but the property owner is still under an obligation to secure the premises in a reasonable manner in a reasonable timeframe.

If you were injured due to a hazardous condition, then you may want to contact an attorney ? you could have a valid claim for damages. An attorney can go over the circumstances of your injury and advise you on the best strategy to obtain compensation for your injuries. You don't need to risk going after these charges all on your own; an attorney can guide you.
