What Is a Slip and Fall Case?
The term “slip and fall” can refer to many kinds of avoidable injuries that happen at a property. They are usually referred to as slip and falls because the most common cases come from slipping and falling. Other cases can be less obvious, such as when a property owner fails to install a railing when it should have, which led to an injury.
Property owners are required by law to take steps to ensure that their properties are safe. Often, property owners do not even need to be aware of the dangerous situation in order to still be held responsible for it. Read more.
Revised Rhode Island Slip and Fall Legislation
Altered in favor of the injured person, the old, “open and obvious doctrine” went into effect July 15, 2019. Before 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 person 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 person was 5% negligent, the injured person would only receive 95% 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.
