### Premises Liability/Slip and Falls Premises liability cases can include slip and falls, but usually involve situations where someone is injured on someone else’s property because the property owner failed to ensure their property was safe and free from any dangerous conditions. Common types of premises liability cases include building collapses, construction site accidents, explosions on property, slip and falls in various retail stores, negligent property maintenance accidents, negligent security on property, slip and falls on ice, and injuries while on a cruise ship. ### Common Premises Liability Accidents Slip and fall accidents occur when a person slips and falls on a slippery surface, such as a wet floor or icy sidewalk. These types of accidents are often caused by the property owner’s failure to maintain the property or provide adequate warning of hazards. Trip and fall accidents occur when a person trips and falls due to an obstacle in the walkway, such as an uneven sidewalk or a cluttered aisle. These types of accidents are often caused by the property owner’s failure to maintain the property or keep it free of hazards. Negligent security incidents occur when a person is injured as a result of inadequate security measures on the property, such as inadequate lighting, lack of security personnel, or faulty security equipment. These types of incidents can happen in a variety of settings, such as a parking lot, apartment complex, or retail store. Other common premises liability accidents include: - Elevator and escalator accidents - Swimming pool accidents - Fire accidents - Dog bite incidents - Amusement park accidents In all these cases, the key element is the property owner’s negligence, which can be in the form of failure to maintain the property, failure to warn, or failure to provide adequate security. An experienced attorney can help you determine whether you have a valid claim and guide you through the legal process. ### Common Slip, Trip & Fall Locations Slip and fall accidents can occur in a variety of settings, but some common stores where they happen include: **Grocery stores:** Slip and fall accidents are common in grocery stores due to spills, leaky refrigeration units, and wet floors. **Department stores**: Department stores often have polished floors and aisles cluttered with merchandise, which can increase the risk of slip and fall accidents. **Shopping malls:** Shopping malls have high foot traffic and can be prone to spills and other hazards that can lead to slip and fall accidents. **Convenience stores:** Convenience stores are often small and crowded, which can make it easy for spills to go unnoticed and create a slip and fall hazard. **Restaurants:** Restaurants can be particularly prone to slip and fall accidents due to spills, wet floors from cleaning, and uneven flooring. **Warehouses:** Slip and fall accidents can also occur in warehouses due to spills, uneven flooring, and cluttered aisles. **Hotels:** Hotels are another common place for slip and fall accidents, particularly in areas such as the lobby, swimming pool, and fitness center. **Outdoor areas:** Slip and fall accidents can also happen in outdoor areas such as parking lots, sidewalks, and staircases. In all of these cases, it is the responsibility of the store or property owner to maintain a safe environment and to clean up or fix any hazards promptly. If you’ve been injured in a slip and fall accident in a store, it’s important to document the accident and seek legal advice. ### Contact Our Experienced Philadelphia Slip & Fall Lawyers The Philadelphia slip & fall lawyers at Green & Schafle understand what a major setback a bad slip and fall accident can be.
