The term "slip and fall" is used in personal injury cases under premises liability. It involves someone literally slipping or tripping on property that belongs to someone else and that is maintained by someone else and suffering some type of injury.
A slip and fall at a Boynton Beach gas station can happen for a variety of reasons. Failure to clean up a spill, broken or cracked flooring, loose carpeting, items in the middle of aisles, or other hazards can all lead to a slip and fall.
The other key component of a slip and fall is that the individual who was involved in a situation at a Boynton Beach gas station may have suffered some type of injury. If an injury took place and happened through no fault of their own, the injured party may be entitled to compensation.Who is Liable in a Shell Station Slip and Fall?
In general, if a slip and fall happened because of negligence by the owner or operator of the Shell station or any other gas station, that individual - or corporation - may be liable for damages to the injured party.
With any commercial property, the owner/manager/operator of a Shell station in Boynton Beach or another location, must meet one of the following criteria:
- They caused the problem that resulted in the slip and fall.
- They knew about the problem but did not act to correct it.
- They should have known about the problem, because any "reasonable" person taking care of the property should have known about it and taken action to remove or repair the problem.
