All information provided about the law is very general in nature and should not be relied upon as legal advice.

Who is responsible if I slip and fall on someone else’s property?
If you are a customer, delivery person, or someone else on the premises for a legitimate business purpose that benefits both parties, the owner has a duty to take reasonable care, including a duty to inspect the property to make the premises safe.
If someone is just a social guest or the owner gets no benefit from the person being on the property, then an owner may be liable only if he or she willfully or wantonly causes the injury.
