Of the many types of cases our law firm handles, ‘slip and fall' cases may be some of the less familiar. Many people don't understand what a slip and fall case is, or what types of accidents fall into that category.
‘Slips and fall' cases – also known as premises liability cases – are cases where a person slipped, tripped, or fell on another person's property. A person, company, or the government may own the property.
Common places that slips, trips, and falls occur include:
Slips and falls occur quite often, but unfortunately, it can be very difficult to prove who was to blame and get victims the compensation they deserve. There are a lot of insurance details to consider, and the legal process can be complicated. Plus, it's easy to think you won't be seriously injured if you slip and fall in a grocery store or trip and fall down a flight of unsafe stairs. Unfortunately, these types of injuries could be life-changing.
That's why our next episode of "No Fee TV" is devoted to slip and fall accidents.
