Slip & Falls

What Is A “Slip And Fall Accident”?

If you are injured as a result of a slip or fall on the property of another, you may be able to bring a claim against the person(s) or entity that owns or controls that property.    The slip or fall must be caused by a defect on the property, such as ice, snow, or a hole, that should have been fixed by the person responsible to maintain the property in a safe manner.
