Property owners throughout Kentucky have the obligation to provide a reasonably safe environment to lawful visitors, residents, tenants or customers. When this does not occur and a hazardous situation exists that is not repaired, a person can be injured by slipping, or tripping, and falling due to a dangerous condition on the premise.
Property owners throughout Kentucky have the obligation to provide a reasonably safe environment to lawful visitors, residents, tenants, or customers. When this does not occur and hazardous situations exist that are not repaired or maintained properly, a person can be injured by slipping, or tripping, and falling due to a dangerous condition on the premises.
In Kentucky, a property owners “duty of care” to see that their property is safe (premises liability), will be assessed against a claimant’s duty to exercise reasonable care (did any action of clamant contribute to the accident).
A slip and fall may cause serious and lasting injuries. Spinal cord injury, broken bones, and head trauma are all potential consequences of a slip and fall or trip and fall accident.
Property owner negligence can be found in a number of circumstances, such as:
- Failure to properly clean or maintain walkways, stairs or aisles.
- Failure to post a “wet floor” sign if a floor has been freshly washed or waxed.
- Negligence in cleaning up a spill or warning others of the hazard.
- Failure to properly inspect property grounds.
- Broken light fixtures, poorly lit steps, or inadequate lighting.
- Bad flooring.
- Wet floors
- In the case of outdoor accidents, weather-related or hidden hazards. An icy patch outside a door or a crack in a sidewalk, or a pothole.
