Common Factors in a Slip and Fall Case

Harding Law Firm - Tuesday, November 15, 2016


Any business that is open to the public has a legal obligation to keep those on their premises reasonably safe. Their obligation is to maintain an area free of safety hazards, in order to keep their potential customers or clients out of harm’s way. If you have been injured in an accident – such as a slip and fall – on a store’s premise, it is possible that you have a valid legal claim against that business.

Common factors that come into play in slip and fall accidents within stores are:

  • Snow or ice accumulations in an entry way
  • A bunched floor mat that poses a tripping hazard
  • Unorderly displays
  • Poor lighting
  • An ignored spill without signage
