What is a slip and fall incident?
Have you been injured because of a slip and fall incident on the property of another person or business? You may be entitled to compensation. Everyday thousands of people are affected by accidents and unsafe conditions that could have been prevented.
Slip and fall personal injury accidents are one type of personal injury claim. These types of accidents typically result from a failure in footing between the injured party’s shoe and the surface of the floor. In other words, the fall is the result of a slippery floor or surface in order for an actionable lawsuit to exist. The most prime example we see is someone goes to a restaurant or movie theater and slips. The fall they sustain could be life threatening, it could be very painful and result in medical bills the patron never counted on incurring.
