Do you have grounds for a premises liability suit?

You were at an indoor swimming pool when it happened. You exited the pool and stepped onto the walkway. It was so slick that you lost your footing and fell back into the water. You struck your head, and the entire pool was shut down after you were pulled out and rushed to the hospital with a head wound.

The conditions were ripe for a slip-and-fall accident. However, the facility, for whatever reason, didn't install flooring that had more tread and grit to prevent falls.

Do you have a premises liability case?

Slip-and-fall cases can lead to successful lawsuits if you can show negligence or intentional actions that led to an injury. For example, slick tiles that were worn down over time should have been replaced for the safety of pool-goers. Failing to consider the risks to consumers and visitors to the waterpark would likely be considered negligent.

There are, of course, situations that no one can predict. Tripping over your own towel on the floor of a gym and hitting your head, for example, probably wouldn't turn into a claim against the premises. Tripping over carpet that pulled up or bunched up and had not been repaired or cordoned off might.

If you slip, trip or fall in or on a property, you may have a premises liability case. It depends on the circumstances. It's worth speaking with an attorney to discuss what happened and the injuries you suffered. Our site has more information about these accidents and what you should do if you're hurt on a business's premises.
