When an individual slips and falls, what is a property owner's responsibility?
A property owner has the responsibility to keep his or her property safe for those persons who appear on it. If an individual falls on another person's property, he or she must prove that the owner is liable for the injury sustained. You must prove that the condition that caused your fall was in fact dangerous. If the fall occurs in a retail store, make an accident report immediately.
Making and keeping the property safe depends on your purpose for being on the property. For example, if you are on the property for business purposes, to attend a party, or you are trespassing and have no reason to be on the property at all.
