New Albany, Indiana (IN) Slip & Fall
Indiana property owners are legally required to uphold safety standards and, by doing so, prevent injury to those on their property. Slip and fall incidents are, unfortunately, common and they’re often due to owner negligence. When a property owner is negligent, and an individual sustains an injury due to unsafe conditions, that owner could be held liable for the damages.

What a Slip and Fall Case Looks Like
Slip and fall cases are generally caused by a property owner neglecting to improve or repair hazardous conditions. Some examples of these unsafe conditions are:
- Wet floors, uneven/poorly maintained walkways, loose mats
- Improper training for hazardous environments
- Lack of supervision for those more prone to falling
These conditions, if not repaired or noted properly, increase the risk of a slip and fall accident exponentially. When a hazardous condition is observed, the property owner must either repair it immediately or post a warning of the situation to inform those in the area of the safety risk. This warning could take the form of a wet floor sign or caution tape, but it must clearly state the risk of traversing the hazardous area.
Falls at Home
Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere. If you live in a rental property, it is the landlord/property manager’s legal responsibility to maintain a safe environment for all residents. This includes the basic maintenance outlined in your lease, as well as repairs of areas within the property that have become unsafe to traverse.

- Severity of the injury
