One of the most well-known types of premises liability involves slip & fall accidents, where the plaintiff slipped on something and fell down; this could be caused by slippery surfaces like wet floors or even snow & ice. These types of accidents can be minor (causing nothing more than a few bruises and scrapes), but they can also be significant, leaving the victim with injuries that range from broken bones to spinal cord injuries to hip dislocation. Slip & fall accidents, however, are not the only example of a case that could fall under premises liability law—any accident on someone else’s property could potentially qualify.
