Who is responsible for a slip-and-fall injury?
When visiting a public place such as a bank, park, store, or parking lot – or even a private home, with the consent of the owner – the owner or entity responsible for that place has a duty to make sure they have kept the space reasonably safe for you and any others on that property.
This means they must keep their floors and pavements free of:
- Tripping Hazards (both inside and outside)
The extent of the responsibility will vary depending on the premises and its owner. For instance, a business owner may bear a greater responsibility to people who come to use the business than the tenant of a house would owe to his guests.
In addition, third parties (for example cleaning companies who maintain premises) may also bear or share responsibility.
