Slip and Fall Accidents
Helping Clients with Slip & Fall and Property Negligence Cases
Slip and fall is a term used to refer to an incident where an individual slips or trips and falls on another’s premises or property. The owner or manager of the property who is responsible for maintaining the premises against dangerous conditions may be held legally liable for the injuries that result due to his or her negligent maintenance. Hazardous conditions on a property or in a building may be torn carpets, poor or non-existent lighting, uneven flooring, narrow stairs, lack of or broken handrails, wet stairs or floors, broken or cracked sidewalks, potholes, or slips and falls during rain, ice, or snow over inadequately maintained areas.
