What is a hazardous condition and who is responsible for it?
In a slip and fall, or trip and fall, case, a hazardous condition is a condition that’s unreasonably dangerous. The property owner will be responsible for the hazardous or unreasonably dangerous condition if you can prove, number one, that the condition was unreasonably dangerous and, number two, that the landowner had notice of it. Sometimes notice can mean actual knowledge or that the condition existed for such a length of time that the owner should have known that the condition occurred.
