Slip and Fall Accidents
A "slip and fall accident" is an incident that occurs when a person loses his or her footing and falls. He or she may trip on an object or may slip, but the result is the same: a fall to the ground. Slip and fall accidents are the most common grounds for premises liability claims. When a person is injured in this type of accident, he or she may be able to hold the property owner legally accountable, if the property owner's negligence led the victim to slip and fall.
