Slip and Fall

Slip and Fall: On Someone Else’s Property, It May Not Be Your Fault

Many times, people who suffer serious injuries in slip and fall or trip-and-fall accidents assume that it is simply their own fault. They often blame themselves for clumsiness or inattention, when in reality the accident may have been brought about by the negligence of the property owner.

If the owners of grocery stores, department stores, office buildings, gas stations and other properties fail to take reasonable precautions to keep people safe, they may be held liable for any injuries that result. In such cases, it is vital to have a knowledgeable and experienced premises liability attorney on your side to make sure you receive the full amount of compensation you deserve.
