Liability in Little Rock Slip and Trip Fall Cases
Property owners, or those who lease a property and maintain it, are responsible for keeping that property free from unreasonable hazards that could hurt guests. Falls are a common way that people suffer injuries.
If there is a fall hazard that occurs and the landowner or another responsible party had an opportunity to address it but did not, they are likely legally liable for any injuries that occur.
For example, if a spill occurs in a restaurant and an employee steps over it but fails to clean it up, the restaurant owner may be liable for the injuries someone sustains if they slip and fall.
How Fall Injuries Occur
In general, there are three common ways fall injuries occur in Little Rock:
- Falls from a height
Many types of hazards can lead to each of these falls. For example:
- Slips occur because of spills, leaks, and tracked rainwater
- Trips happen because of objects in the walkway, uneven flooring, and unmarked steps
- Falls from a height can involve stairs, broken railings, or faulty banisters
Each of these fall types also has its own injury mechanisms. While almost any kind of injury can occur in any fall, slips generally cause the victim to fall back onto their tailbone or back. Head injuries, back injuries, and broken bones can occur. Trips cause them to fall forward, which often leads to hand, wrist, and arm injuries from trying to catch themselves.
Falls from a height can cause severe and devastating injuries, depending on what happened and how far the victim fell.
Where do Slip and Fall Accidents Happen?
Fall injuries can occur almost anywhere. Some of the places where our team handles fall accident cases include:
- Grocery stores
- Department stores
- Big box retailers
- Stadiums, arenas, and theaters
- Bars and pubs
- Public buildings
- Parking lots

Timeline for Suing the Landowner in a Little Rock Premises Liability Case
Many fall cases settle through negotiations with the insurance company that represents the liable party. They do not require us to sue the landowner or force our client to make court appearances. However, we do sometimes need to sue to recover appropriate compensation for our clients.
In general, the deadline for getting started on a lawsuit is three years from the date of the fall under:
- Ark. Code Ann. § 16-56-105 for injury suits
- Ark. Code Ann. § 16-62-102 if a wrongful death occurred
It is possible for this timeline to change, and you could have less time based on the facts of your fall case. Reach out to our team as soon as you are able after your injuries occur. We will review your fall case for free and provide information about your options for compensation.
