SLIP & FALL

Thousands of people are severely injured or killed every year in slip and fall situations, and if this has happened to you, you’ll need the help of an experienced attorney in this area. Sip and fall is a liability issue when a home owner or business owner is responsible for the physical injury of a person on their property. Usually this is a result of a slip trip or fall perhaps from poorly maintained floors or sidewalks or even inadequate lighting inside home or business.

With companies and home owners struggle in result of the economy sometimes people will cut corners when it comes to maintenance. In some situations when running a business there are certain established 'codes' for safety. When codes or maintenance is lacking, the owner of the place of business or home may be responsible for medical bills.
