All property owners have a legal duty to ensure their premises are safe. Property owners must maintain their property, sidewalks, driveways, and structures to minimize the risk of injury to visitors. This duty requires property owners to protect against slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents. They have a duty to repair uneven sidewalks; driveways; walk-ways; isles; and other interior and exterior surfaces of their property. They also have a duty to protect against icy or snowy sidewalks or walkways and slippery or wet floors; keep stairways and walkways safe and in good repair; and keep construction sites safe. When property owners fail to properly maintain their property, they are liable for any resulting injuries. Because these cases often result in serious and permanent injuries, slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall victims should be represented by a skilled slip-and-fall lawyer who will fight for their rights
If you have been seriously injured in a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident, contact a Utah slip-and-fall lawyer immediately to protect your rights. These cases are often complicated, involving multiple parties (owners, lessors, designers, lessees) and insurance companies.
