Slip and Fall
Don’t suffer for someone else’s negligence.
Slip-and-fall accidents are the most common type of premises liability cases and are extremely common across the United States. Premises liability cases are prosecuted under the legal theory of negligence. In a slip-and-fall case, a Plaintiff must be able to show that either the Defendant created the condition causing the fall or knew (or should have known) of the condition and did not remedy it.
OSHA estimates that slip, trip and fall accidents account for 15% of all accidental deaths in the United States, which makes them second only to car accidents. Nearly 9 million visits to the emergency room are due to falls, slips and other accidental injuries. Many of these injuries can be easily prevented if an owner fixes a dangerous condition or posts a warning about it.
You may have questions about whether a property owner is liable for your injuries. You may have questions about what to do immediately following a slip-and-fall accident. You may have questions concerning the statute of limitations for slip-and-fall cases.
