There are certain elements that must be in play in a slip and fall accident. Injuries usually must result from a hazardous condition that would not have been present if said property was properly maintained or designed. Additionally, the owner of the property with hazardous conditions must have been aware of said conditions or the conditions must have been present long enough that the owner should have been aware.
Another aspect you should be aware of is the type of property your injury occurred on. In most slip and fall cases, the property is likely commercial, residential, or government property.
