Slip and fall accidents can happen in a split second. One moment and one negligent or reckless action by another can result in an injury. Property owners are required by law to maintain their premises and may be held liable if they fail to do so. An injury caused by a slip or fall can happen as a result of poor lighting, uneven floors, or a slippery surface.
When there is not enough traction between the bottom of the foot and the surface being walked on, a slip may occur. When a person hits an object and loses balance due to the collision, one trips.
Both a slip or a trip can result in a fall that could result in injury or wrongful death. Poorly maintained property conditions that may cause a trip or a slip and fall include:
Uneven walking surfaces (indoor or outdoor)
Broken or unsafe stairways
Handrails that are loose
Unguarded city equipment or manholes
Floors that are wet, oily, or covered with debris
Poor lighting conditions
Construction site conditions that are unsafe
Laws regarding slip and fall cases may be complex, and each accident has its specific circumstances. There are many variables that come into play: where the accident occurred, statute of limitations, and negligence. Property owners have a duty of care and responsibilities to make sure there are no potential dangers. Business owners must ensure that there are no hazards and their property is safe for visitors, public, and customers.

Premise is a building and its grounds or other attachments. Liability means monetary obligations or money owed.Premise liability law makes a premise of property owner responsible for certain injuries that may result from any person present on the premises who has an accident.
