Property owners must keep passageways free of tripping dangers

A negligent property owner who fails to correct potential slip-and-fall hazards will be financially liable to visitors who get hurt because of these hazards. This liability could extend to the costs associated with the victim's medical care, lost wages due to time spent unable to work, compensation for pain and suffering, court costs, attorneys' fees and more.

A property owner's liability in a catastrophic slip-and-fall accident could force him or her to pay out millions of dollars in damages to the injured victim. As such, it's vital for property owners to diligently maintain safe premises for their visitors. Considering the pain and suffering that could befall on a slip-and-fall victim, it's also the owner's moral obligation to protect his or her visitors in this regard.

One important way for property owners to keep their premises safe is to keep walkways free of unnecessary obstacles. Here's how property owners can stay attentive to this issue:

  • Keep any passageways and aisles frequented by visitors clean and free of unnecessary obstacles.
  • Never allow electrical lines, extension cords, cables, pipes or anything else stretch across a hallway or aisle.
  • Do not pile up boxes, suitcases, files or inventory in areas of a property frequented by visitors.
  • Inspect the premises on a regular basis to ensure that nothing is piling up in public areas that could present a danger to guests.

Visitors who have suffered serious injuries after falling on someone else's property will incur steep medical bills. However, by successfully pursuing a personal injury claim, these victims may be able to secure compensation to pay for these and other costs.
