If you slip and are injured on property owned or maintained by someone else, then the property owner may be held legally responsible. Conditions like narrow stairs or wet floor can cause someone to slip and be injured. Liability may also arise if someone trips on cracked or uneven sidewalks, or when someone is injured because of rain, ice or a hidden hazard, such as a pothole in the ground.
In general, you must prove that the cause of the accident was a "dangerous condition," and that the owner of the property knew of or should have known the "dangerous condition". The condition must pose an unreasonable risk to a person on the property, the injured party should not have anticipated such condition. And lastly, it must have been foreseeable that owner's negligence would create the danger at issue.
