Salt Lake City Slip & Fall Lawyers

Helping You Seek Fair Compensation for Your Damages

Slipping and falling can be embarrassing. Many people who fall jump right up and brush off any injuries, believing the fall to be their own fault. However, dangerous property conditions—such as wet floors or exposed wiring—can cause people to trip, slip, and/or fall and, in turn, sustain serious injuries. When a property owner is negligent and you are injured as a result, you are entitled to seek compensation for your resulting medical bills and other damages.

The Salt Lake City slip and fall lawyers at Lowe Law Group are here to guide you through the legal process. Premises liability claims, including those involving slip and fall injuries, are some of the most complex and difficult to prove. However, we have a proven record of success in these types of personal injury cases. We love celebrating our clients’ wins and are immensely proud of the thousands of injured individuals we have helped throughout our years in practice.

When Is a Property Owner Liable for a Slip & Fall Accident?

In Utah, property owners owe a duty of reasonable care to anyone who lawfully enters the property. A duty of care simply means that property owners are responsible for ensuring that their premises are reasonably safe for visitors. This includes taking certain steps, such as the following steps:

  • Conducting property maintenance
  • Warning potential visitors of any unsafe conditions

In order to prove that a property owner was negligent and, therefore, liable for a slip and fall accident, you will need to prove all of the following elements:

  • The property owner owed you a duty of care, meaning you were lawfully allowed to be on the property owner’s land
  • The property owner failed to uphold the duty of care, e.g. by failing to fix a dangerous condition, failing to maintain the property, failing to warn you of a dangerous condition, etc.
  • As a result of the property owner’s negligence, you were injured and suffered measurable damages (medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, etc.)

Note that property owners in Utah generally do not owe a duty of care to trespassers, with some exceptions. These exceptions include instances in which a property owner knows or can reasonably expect trespassers to frequently enter certain areas of the property where they are exposed to danger, instances in which a manmade condition (such as a pool or another body of water) subjects trespassers to danger, or instances involving children who enter private property due to an attractive condition.

What Are Dangerous Property Conditions?

Many premises liability claims, including slip and fall cases, involve what are known as “dangerous property conditions.” Essentially, these are conditions that exist on the property that cause or contribute to the slip and fall accident. Generally speaking, property owners are responsible for repairing, addressing, or warning of dangerous conditions that they knew existed or reasonably should have known existed.

Property owners cannot be held liable for dangerous conditions they didn’t or couldn’t have known about.

Examples of dangerous property conditions that often lead to slip and fall accidents include:

  • Wet or slippery floors
  • Spilled liquids
  • Exposed wires and other tripping hazards
  • Accumulated ice or snow
  • Cluttered walkways and aisles
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Potholes
  • Uneven flooring
  • Torn or ripped carpeting
  • Defective sidewalks

When any of these or other dangerous property conditions cause a person to slip, trip, or fall, and the property owner knew the dangerous condition existed but didn’t fix it or warn others of its existence, victims can seek compensation for their damages.

Can slip and fall cases be strict liability?

Slip and fall cases in Utah can sometimes fall under strict liability. This means that claimants are not required to prove that they suffered injury due to negligence or a reckless act. These cases are rare, but can result from situations involving failed building safety codes.

In strict liability cases, the main issue is the degree of liability and the amount of compensation owed to the person filing the slip and fall claim, rather than proving that liability exists.
