Slip and Fall Accidents
Personal injury law is a blanket term that covers a wide range of cases, such as auto accidents, product liability, and even slip and fall accidents. When property owners fail to provide invited guests, patrons, or other people with a safe environment free of hazards, they could cause a slip and fall accident. Every year, over a million people are either injured or killed in a slip and fall accident across the United States, making them one of the most common personal injury law cases filed annually.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a slip and fall accident due to a reckless property owner’s actions, you may be able to fight and recover financial compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses.

Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents can have devastating consequences, ranging from traumatic brain injuries to broken bones and even spinal cord damage. Because these injuries and accidents are usually the fault of a negligent property owner or manager, a person may be able to file a legal claim against them. Some common reasons people file slip and fall claims include:
- Spills on the floor that weren’t properly cleaned up
- Freshly waxed floors that weren’t marked
- Damaged flooring
- Staircases without handrails
These and other hazards could cause an innocent person to suffer a serious injury in a slip and fall accident, causing them physical, emotional, and financial harm.
