Slip, Trip or Fall
A “slip and fall” is the most common form of a premises liability accident. This type of accident occurs when a hazardous condition, such as an uneven or poorly lit walkway, causes a person to lose his or her footing and fall.
Slip and fall injuries often result in back problems, spinal injury and broken or fractured bones.
