Slip and fall injuries can occur anywhere—indoors or outdoors. A wet floor, a pothole, poorly light steps, or an icy parking lot can cause a slip and fall accident.
North Carolina premise liability law applies to both homes and businesses. Property owners and property management agents have a duty to maintain a property in safe condition with adequate security. When they fail to do so, people can suffer serious slip and fall injuries including back injuries, neck injuries, head injuries and broken hips.
Most successful premise liability lawsuits in North Carolina involve people who are lawfully on another’s property—whether as a customer at a retail store or office or as a guest at a friend’s house. The key to a successful slip and fall claim is to prove the property owner was aware of the hazard and did nothing to fix it.
