If a person suffers a slip-and-fall injury on government property will the government be found liable?

Yes, but only if the government entity managing the property has been found to have been negligent and that said negligence precipitated the slip-and-fall accident.

There are also key limitations involved with suing the federal government and most states and municipalities for a slip-and-fall incident on government property. These include strict notice and time deadlines for filing the claim, as well as a limit on how much money the plaintiff can win if he or she wins their case.
