One of the most common premises liability claims, a slip and fall (or trip and fall) refers to any accidental injury sustained after falling on someone else’s property. In 2015, fall injuries accounted for over 50 billion dollars in US medical expenses. Older people are especially at risk due to fall injuries, with 2.8 million patients receiving emergency treatment each year due to falls.
If you or a loved one sustained serious injuries due to a fall on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation for any damages. As slip and fall cases must prove liability through negligence on the part of the property owner, it’s important to have an experienced attorney on hand to assist you with your claim.
