What Is a Slip and Fall Accident?

A slip and fall accident is exactly as it sounds: a slip on something on the ground, causing a fall and an injury.  A variety of substances can cause a slip, including oil, food, an uneven surface, a loose rug, etc.  The fall doesn't have to be far - even a few feet will suffice.  What really determines whether you have a case is the severity of your injuries.

Where Do Slip and Fall Accidents Occur? 

Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere: at work, a private home, a restaurant, the supermarket, a home improvement store, etc.  It is the property owner's responsibility to keep their premises free of conditions that could lead to a slip and fall accident.  If the property owner fails to maintain their premises in a safe condition and you are injured, you may have a lawsuit for your slip and fall accident.
