As its name suggests, a “slip and fall” is any accident in which an individual slips, trips, or falls on someone else’s property and suffers injuries as a result.
However, you may also hear the term “premises liability” used to describe slip and fall accidents. This is because these events usually happen on a property, or “premises,” that is owned or maintained by someone other than the injured party.
These accidents can happen anywhere – at a restaurant, at work, in the parking lot of a shopping mall, or even at your friend’s house. If you or someone you know has suffered an injury after slipping, tripping, or falling on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation.
An experienced premises liability lawyer can determine your legal options and any amount you may be owed for your injuries.
