The Property Owner’s Duty to Protect You from Slip and Falls
- Premises liability refers to the duty of a property owner to protect you against a slip and fall accident, or from another type of dangerous property condition.
- Property owners, landlords and people responsible for maintaining a property may be liable for injuries that are caused by a dangerous property condition. One common premises liability claim is a serious trip or playground accident.
Slip and fall accidents are also common in the workplace. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2021 there were 281 work-related fatalities involving a slip, trip, or fall. Additionally, the CDC reports that 18% of the 1.17 million non-fatal work-related injuries in 2020 were caused by slips, trips, and falls. Workers’ compensation and medical costs from on-the-job slip and fall accidents have been estimated at $70 billion a year in the United States.
