"Duty of Care" and Slip & Fall Accidents

Like most personal injury cases, slip and fall accidents rely on the concept of liability. Who is responsible for your accident? The term "duty of care" can help you establish liability. Duty of care is a legal obligation held by property owners that requires them to maintain a safe environment for visitors and customers. Failing to clean up a dangerous spill, for example, does not uphold duty of care. This is a form of negligence. Similarly, failing to post a warning sign near uneven flooring can constitute negligence as well.

Common Slip & Fall Accidents
