These types of claims can be complicated and difficult to prove. Business owners invite people like you onto their premises. However, did you know that the owner owes you a duty as a business invitee. Business owners owe invitees a duty to inspect their property for any known or unknown hazardous conditions that may constitute an unreasonably dangerous condition, and to repair or at least warn you of the danger.
However, just because you slip and fall does not automatically pass on liability to the business owner. If food or a drink spilled on the floor just minutes before you slipped on it, the owner may not have been given enough time to notice the hazard. In another case, if you were not paying attention to an obvious danger that everyone else avoided, you may be held liable for your own injuries.
If you fell at someone’s home, the homeowner owed you a duty to warn of any known dangers such as a broken step, but has no duty to inspect the property. In a case like this, you need the services of a legal professional slip and fall lawyer from the Morey Law Firm, P.A., who can investigate your claim and advise you if liability can be shown in your case.
