Slip and fall cases are referred to as premises liability cases because they are asserted against a defendant who owns, possesses, or controls the premises when an injury causing event occurs. A slip and fall incident could occur anywhere, including at the supermarket, at a restaurant, at an office building, at someone else's home, or inside an apartment building. The key issue in a slip and fall case is whether the owner or possessor had notice of the injury causing condition and whether appropriate steps were taken to protect those persons who are reasonably expected to be on the premises, including properly warning them. In this video, I discuss some of the things you may be able to do following a slip and fall incident that can potentially help you show notice on the part of the property owner or possessor.
