Slip and Fall Accident Liability in Arizona
Slip and fall accident cases are brought under an area of law called premises liability. Property owners and managers must keep their premises in reasonably safe condition. The failure to do so is considered negligent. Under Arizona law, the individual or entity that controls property has a legal obligation to keep customers and invited guests safe. If a Phoenix business or Phoenix property owner creates an unreasonable safety hazard or fails to take reasonable action to remove a dangerous property defect, then that entity can be held legally liable for any resulting injuries. Establishing liability can be complex. As such, injury victims should reach out to a qualified Phoenix slip and fall attorney for help.
