Property Owner Negligence That Causes Slip & Fall Accidents
Property owners have an obligation to keep their premises safe from hazards that can cause slip and fall accidents. If they fail to take the necessary precautions, visitors and guests can suffer serious injuries due to a variety of mistakes.
Common examples of property owner negligence that can cause a slip and fall accident include:
- Neglecting to warn visitors about potential hazards.
- Letting spills stay on slick flooring or tiles.
- Inadequate lighting that limits visibility.
- Not repairing broken or missing handrails near steps.
- Failing to maintain the property.
- And other acts of negligence or inaction.
Residential property owners and commercial property owners must both try to prevent slip and fall accidents on their properties, but the methods they use might be different. For example, a retail store owner might need to hire staff members to sweep and clean the floor regularly, especially in areas where shoppers frequent.
Injuries Suffered in Slip & Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents can cause a variety of injuries, ranging from minor bruises, cuts, or scrapes to more severe injuries like fractures, head trauma, or back and spinal cord injuries. Elderly people are especially vulnerable to these kinds of accidents since they tend to be at a greater risk of bone fractures. Do not be convinced by the defendant that your injuries “can’t be serious” because you “only slipped and fell.” See a medical professional for a diagnosis as soon as you can, which can help build your claim later.
Our attorneys can help people who have suffered serious injuries, such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Spinal cord damage or paralysis
- Joint injuries
- Neck injuries
Compensation in a Slip & Fall Accident Claim
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident in Arizona, you may be eligible for compensation. Depending on the severity of your injury and the specific situation, you could be compensated for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, or the loss of a loved one who was fatally injured. You may also be entitled to punitive damages if the property owner was found to have acted with gross negligence, too, but such damages are rare.

Who is typically liable for a slip and fall accident?
The property owner or occupier usually is responsible for taking "reasonable care" to ensure that their premises are safe and free from hazards.
Can I file a slip and fall claim even if I was partially at fault?
Yes, you may still be able to recover damages if you were partially at fault in Arizona due to the state’s comparative fault doctrine.
How long do I have to file a slip and fall claim?
In general, you must seek compensation within two years of the slip and fall accident in Arizona. If your claim involves a government entity, however, you may have much less time to bring your case forward.
