A slip and fall accident is usually covered under premises liability law. Premises liability refers to accidents and injuries that occur on another person's property as a result of negligence in taking reasonable action to provide for the safety of visitors, customers, residents, patrons, etc. As an example, a property owner may have a floor waxed and then fail to put up a warning sign that indicates that the floor may be slippery. If a lawful visitor slips and falls, the property owner may be able to be held liable for the injuries that the visitor sustains.
