Common Places And Causes for Slip and Falls

No matter where a person is, the landowner owes him or her the highest duty of reasonable care if that person is a customer or social guest.

This applies to:
  • Store owners
  • Apartment complexes
  • Homeowners
  • Business owners
  • Government buildings
  • Post offices
  • Restaurants
  • Any of the various places that people go to shop, dine and visit

McKibben Shaw Law has successfully received compensation for clients injured in any of these places. And, the important thing to remember is that each time the landowner or business owes a duty to the invited person to use "reasonable care."

This means the landowner owes the duty to the person on the land to make reasonable inspections at a timely interval so that all dangerous and defective conditions can be discovered and remedied in an efficient fashion.

This does not mean that all parking lots and sidewalks must be free from ice and snow. Nor does it mean that a landowner must salt/plow during a snowstorm. Clearly, a safe premises would be impossible to achieve under those conditions.

What it does mean, is that a landowner must try to make the land safe by using "reasonable" measures to do so. Consequently, if there was a two-day snowstorm and the landowner does not plow at all or waits until the next week, then that landowner would not be acting "reasonably" and a jury verdict could be rendered in favor of the Plaintiff.
