What Types Of Slip and Fall Cases Are Most Common?
The phrase “slip and fall” refers to any falling injury that occurs on someone else’s property. The actual act of slipping and falling is the common reason for the injuries. However, there are also less obvious slip and fall cases, for instance, when a property owner fails to have adequate handrails where they should be.
Property owners are required by law to have certain precautions in place to ensure that the premises is safe for all those welcome on it. Most times, property owners can be held liable for an injury even if they are unaware of the dangerous condition that caused it. Read more.
Slip and Fall Law Revised In RI
The former “open and obvious doctrine” has been changed in favor of the injured party as of July 15, 2019. Prior to the change, the injured party was unable to recover if they were injured in a situation that was considered open and obvious. Under the revised version of the doctrine, the injured party now has the ability to recover monetary damages even if the hazardous situation was considered open and obvious. It is worthy to note 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 at all.
Are Slip and Falls on Commercial Properties Different?
Since commercial properties, such as stores, hold themselves open to the public, they owe customers a certain duty of care that guarantees a safe premise for all who enter. As such, commercial property owners may be responsible for your injury even if they were not aware of the dangerous condition that existed on their property. Read more.
