Slip and Fall Laws in Tennessee: Explained

Slip and fall accidents fall under an area of law known as ‘premises liability.’ In Tennessee, property owners and property occupiers (businesses) have a basic responsibility to keep their premises in reasonably safe conditions for customers and other guests. If they fail to do so—for example, by failing to identify and remove an obvious tripping hazard—they can be held legally liable for the resulting injuries. Here are three specific things you should know about our state’s slip and fall accidents laws: 

  • Liability is Based on Fault: To hold a Sevier County business or property owner liable for a slip and fall, you must prove that the accident occurred because of their failure to take adequate care. This requires proving that your accident was caused by an unreasonable safety hazard that the defendant could have removed. 
  • Comparative Negligence Standard Applies: Slip and fall accident claims fall under the comparative negligence standard. You can recover financial compensation for a slip and fall even if you were partially at fault for your own accident—but your compensation will be reduced in direct relation to your level of blame.  
  • One-Year Statute of Limitations: You must file a slip and fall accident claim before the statute of limitations deadline ticks away. Under Tennessee law (Tennessee Code § 28-3-104), slip/trip and falls are subject to a one-year statute of limitations.
