Slip and fall accidents are incredibly common and can lead to serious injuries. A property owner has the duty to exercise reasonable care to protect individuals who are invited on the premises from dangerous conditions.
As this video explains, the owner is not required to guarantee the safety of others, but he or she is required to take certain reasonable precautions. It is important to understand that the mere existence of a dangerous condition on the premises may not be enough to establish liability; there must be a reasonable expectation for the owner to have discovered the situation before the accident.
