Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents commonly occur in hotels, restaurants, and other crowded facilities. Slip and fall accidents are covered by the legal theory of premises liability, which provides that the owner or occupiers of a property are liable for accidents and injuries that occur on their property. Other types of accidents covered by the premises liability theory include: stairway accidents, elevator accidents, falling merchandise, negligent security, and swimming pool accidents.

Owners and occupiers of hotels, restaurants and other facilities are obligated to maintain a safe property and liability cannot be delegated to another party. For instance, if a hotel outsources its elevator maintenance to third party and there is an elevator accident, the owner is still liable for resulting injuries. If an owner leases the property to someone else, such as a restaurant operator, however, special rules may apply. Generally, whoever is in control of the property is liable for any injuries that occur on it.
