Slip, Trip and Fall cases come in two categories. The first category is when there is a permanent dangerous condition on a business or residential property. The second category is where there is a transitory condition on property that causes a dangerous condition. The standard for property owners in Indiana requires the owner or occupier of land to keep their property free from dangerous conditions. Whether something is a dangerous condition depends on the specific facts of the case. This is why it is very important to consult an Indiana slip, trip and fall lawyer shortly after an accident so the evidence can be preserved.
