Slip and fall liability is often determined by whether hazardous conditions on the property were permanent or temporary. In the case of permanent hazards, such as a broken handrail, property owners are typically held liable because the hazardous situation should have been remedied.
In the case of temporary hazards, such as an icy driveway, slip and fall liability often depends on whether the property owner had ample time to realize and remedy the situation. The victim’s status is also considered when determining liability.
