Slip and Fall
Falling on another’s property or in a department store can be both embarrassing and cause serious injury. If you believe the fall you experienced was partly or completely the fault of another, call us. Property owners are responsible for keeping their premises safe and for warning visitors of any potential hazards. Falls can be scary and can lead to serious injuries. The term "slip and fall" describes the type of injury that occurs on someone else's property, usually as a result of a defective surface, a slippery substance, or other dangerous conditions. For example, if a supermarket owner mops the floor and does not mark the area to warn consumers, he or she may be legally liable for a fall down injury occurring in that location. Even if the property owner was unaware of the danger at the time the personal injury occurred, the other might be responsible if he or she should have known about it. It is important to seek a personal injury attorney with experience in slip and fall accidents.
