Slip and fall claims fall into the category of premises liability litigation, where property owners or managers are accused of violating the duty of care owed to their guests. When someone with control over the premises fails to take reasonable safety measures, visitors who are injured due to that failure can recover personal injury damages. In some cases, premises liability cases stem from the fact that the defendant did not warn the plaintiff of a hard-to-see hazard. Other times, the tortious conduct involves a failure to repair a problem that the property owner knew, or should have known, about.
