Do I Have a Slip and Fall Case?
“Slip and fall” refers to any kind of preventable injury that happens on a property. They are called slip and falls because the most common cases come from slipping and falling on ice or snow, spilled liquids or other products, or holes and gaps in walking surfaces. Other cases may be less obvious. One example could be that a property owner failed to install a railing when they should have, which led to an injury.
Property owners are obligated by law to take certain steps to ensure that their properties are safe for people that are allowed to be there. Often, property owners do not even need to be aware of the dangerous condition in order to still be held responsible for their property. Read more.
New Slip and Fall Law In RI
As of July 15, 2019, the former “open and obvious doctrine” has been changed in favor of the injured party. Before this change, the injured party was entirely unable to recover if they were injured and if the situation was one that was open and obvious. Under the new law, the injured party now has the ability to recover monetary damages even if the hazardous situation was open and obvious. Notwithstanding, Rhode Island is a comparative negligence state. This means the amount of negligence attributed to the injured party may reduce recovery amounts. However, it is still good to have the potential for some recovery rather than no chance to recover.
