Most trip and fall cases turn on whether the property owner had “notice” of the tripping hazard. The issue of whether the owner had “notice”, in legal talk, means whether he “knew or should have known” of the tripping danger. If the injured trip-and-fall victim can prove “notice”, and the owner failed to fix or remedy the tripping hazard, then it follows that the owner did not act reasonably, failed in his duty, and is liable for the injuries. Owners of residential, commercial and recreational properties all have the duty to keep their property safe and warn people of any dangerous conditions.
Physical harm sustained from these types of accidents can range from broken bones, or depending in the severity of the fall, spinal injuries, head trauma or wrongful death. It is very common as a result of an unexpected fall to hit your head which can result in brain injury with long term neurological problems.
