Whenever you are not on your own property, you may be at risk for an injury due to the negligence of another. Property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe for patrons to move about without injuring themselves.
If you were on another's property and injured yourself in a slip-and-fall accident, it may be because the property owner was being negligent. The responsibility of the property owner is to keep their property safe and to properly and effectively protect you from hazards. If you suffered a fall and believe it was because the property wasn't safe, you may have recourse to file a lawsuit for damages.

How Slip-and-Fall Accidents Occur
Any property, whether privately owned or a public business, has to keep their grounds safe for anyone that may be walking there. This means that any of the following could cause a slip-and-fall accident because of negligence:
- Uneven grounds
- Uneven stairs
- Lack of proper railings
- Unmarked hazards
Your slip may have caused severe injuries including the following:
The concept of premises liability means that a property owner can't leave hazards unmarked or unfixed. It can be a difficult lawsuit because you may be trying to prove that the property owner knew about the danger, but didn't take action to remedy it. It can also be a difficult case to handle because it can be one person's word against another.
