Slip Trip and Fall


If a property owner fails to maintain a safe property they can be help responsible for negligence.

  • Failure to install curbing properly and securely
  • Failure to properly secure carpeting or rugs
  • Failure to clean floors properly in the event product has been spilled, or when there is a roof or equipment leak
  • Failure to put up warning signs of slippery floors or change in elevation
  • Failure to install or maintain adequate lighting in stairwells, or failure to have hand rails
  • Failure to fix broken railings, screens or other safety features
  • Failure to keep aisles clear or allowing merchandise on shelves to stick out into the aisle
  • Failure to maintain elevators allowing them to mislevel creating a tripping hazard
