Slip and Fall injuries can happen pretty much anywhere. Sometimes they are just simple accidents that don’t mean that anyone was negligent or at fault –other than the person injured. However, there is a legal term called “premises liability”. What this means is that someone or some organization was negligent in properly maintaining their premises to a standard that they are legally responsible to. Some common places that slip and fall accidents occur due to negligence by the property owner or management are:
- Sidewalks (moving or stationary), including curbs
- Family, friends or neighbours homes
- Parking Lots / Garages, Driveways
- Public Access Gyms, Pools, Parks & Playgrounds
- Grocery or shopping centres
- Restaurants, Pubs, Bars and Nightclubs

- Construction Sites, Buildings or facilities under renovation
- Stairways, Loose Handrails
