What is A “Duty of Care?”
Property owners and managers owe all visitors something known in legalese as a “duty of care.” This means that they are responsible for keeping the premises reasonably safe, clean, and free from obvious hazards. Any violation of this duty of care is called “negligence.” In a slip and fall case, evidence of negligence can take many different forms. Generally, though, it involves some type of proof that the property owner or manager failed to keep the property clean, safe, and hazard-free for guests. This may include surveillance camera footage, photos of the hazardous conditions, eyewitness accounts of the property’s condition, an incident report completed by the victim, records of past accidents that occurred on the property, property maintenance records, and more. If you have been injured in a slip and fall on someone’s property, you have a duty of your own: First, you must mitigate your damages. This means that you should immediately seek the medical treatment you need to address your injuries. Second, you need to take steps to preserve your claim. In slip and fall cases that involve physical evidence like a spill, an uneven floor, or a rotting stairway handle, another party can easily try to erase any sign of the hazard. To reduce this risk, you can:
- Immediately inform the manager.
- Complete an incident report.
- Contact the police to secure an accident report.
- Take photos.
- Record the names and contact information of the property owner, tenant, or manager on-site at the time of the accident, as well as any eyewitnesses or bystanders.
