Slip & Fall Accidents

PREMISES LIABILITY

Slip/Trip and fall injuries fall under the umbrella of premises liability. When a property owner fails to make repairs, fails to put up a sign warning of potential danger (as in the case of a wet floor) or fails to properly inspect his/her property for potentially hazardous situations, and you are injured as a result, you can bring about a personal injury claim in order to receive compensation for your medical expenses, past and future lost income, and pain and suffering.
