Slip and Fall

Slip and/or trip and fall accidents can be very serious. Depending on what causes you to slip, or trip, and fall — and depending on conditions around you when you fall, a slip and fall accident can result in broken bones, head trauma, or damage to your neck or spine.

Serious slip and/or trip and fall accidents deserve serious medical attention, of course. If you have been injured in a serious slip and/or trip and fall accident, you should consult an experienced personal injury lawyer to find out whether you have a valid premises liability claim.

Premises liability is a legal concept that makes a property owner legally responsible for dangerous conditions on their property. If someone is hurt because the property owner did not take reasonable steps to warn visitors or to repair the dangerous condition, then the property owner may be legally responsible for the resulting injuries from a slip and/or trip and fall or trip and fall accident.
