Just because you are injured on someone else’s property does not make them a guarantor of your safety. The owner or person(s) in control of the premises must know of, or should have known of the hazardous condition that caused your injury. If the owner or person in control of the premises knew or should have known of the hazardous condition on their property but failed to warn you of the dangerous conditions and you slipped and/or tripped as a result of that hazardous condition then you may have a premises liability claim. In premises liability claims it will need to be assessed to see if you contributed in any way to the accident occurring. This is known as contributory negligence.
