When you fall on premises owned or operated by someone else, they may be liable for injuries that you suffer if they left their property in bad repair.In a grocery store, you may trip over electrical cords running across an aisle, or slip on liquid left on the floor. If you are injured due to the poor condition of the place you visit, you may have a claim for premises liability.
If you fall on the property of someone else, take these steps if you can:
If you are injured, stay where you are until medical help arrives.
If possible, take pictures, or have someone take pictures of the place where you were injured. If you slid and fell in water on the floor, it will be cleaned up quickly, so try and get pictures of the conditions under which you fell, and what you believe caused your fall.
