How Do You Define a “Slip and Fall Case”?
The term “slip and fall” is pretty general in the range of injuries it applies to. A typical slip and fall case arises out of an injury that could have been prevented if the property owner took reasonable precautions in mainlining their premises. Unfit conditions on walkways, stairwells, and doorways oftentimes contribute to slip and fall injuries. Property owners are required by law to take certain steps to ensure that their properties are safe, and when they fail to take these steps, they can be held responsible for injuries that occur as a result.

Revised Slip and Fall Law In RI
Changed in favor of the injured party, the old, “open and obvious doctrine” went into effect July 15, 2019. Prior to this change, the injured person was unable to recover if they were injured in a situation that was thought to be open and obvious. With the new version of this doctrine, the injured party now has the potential to recover monetary damages even if the hazardous situation was considered open and obvious. It should be noted that Rhode Island is still a comparative negligence state. For example, if the injured party was 20% negligent, they would only receive 80% of the possible 100% compensation. However, it is still good to have the potential for some recovery rather than no chance to recover at all.
What If My Slip and Fall Accident Happened At Someone Else’s Home?
These situations are complicated because when someone slips and falls at another person’s house, it is usually a friend or someone they know. This makes things difficult as most people don’t want to file a lawsuit against a family member or a friend. However, it is important to keep in mind that the only way to get fully compensated for your injuries is to file a lawsuit. More often than not, homeowners have insurance that can cover the expenses of a lawsuit in the event someone is injured on their property. Read More.
