The term "Slip and Fall" refers to the area of premise liability law where an individual is injured due to various types of material condition deficiencies or hazards in a home, at business, or other property. Injuries may vary in type and levels of severity; and depending upon the injuries sustained, the types of medical treatment, physical therapy, rehabilitation periods may differ as well.
Property owners, business establishments, and homeowners have a lawful duty to provide a safe environment for individuals who visit their premises or property. If you are injured because a property owner fails to provide a safe environment, you may have a right to bring a claim for various damages incurred due to your injuries.
Slip and fall injuries may vary from a sprained ankle to broken bones, brain and spinal cord injuries, to paralysis, or even death. The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control estimates that approximately 8 million people are injured in a slip and fall accident or incident each year in the United States.
The cause or main contributing factor of a slip and fall accident may involve any dangerous physical, material, or environmental condition which poses a threat to cause injury or harm.
