Question: When is a property owner responsible for my injuries if I slip and fall or trip and fall on their property?

Answer: If you go into a business and are injured in a fall on that property, the owner is not automatically liable for your injuries.  You must be able to show that the property owner is legally responsible (at fault) for your fall.  Unless it can be shown that the property owner has done something wrong (or not done something that should have been done) which caused you fall, you cannot recover damages from the property owner.  The requirement of showing that someone is legally liable for your injuries is a part of all negligence cases.
