Common Legal Questions About Slip and Fall Accidents

The term “slip and fall” is a premises liability claim that involves a person slipping or tripping on the premises of another that results in an injury. Slip and fall accidents include a broad range of hazardous situations such as a defect or slippery substance on the floor. Premise liability entitles you to compensation of your injuries sustained from negligence of the property owner.

If you have been involved in a slip and fall accident, you must immediately report it to the proper channels. If you are in a commercial or retail store, it should be reported to the on-site manager.

Seek medical attention for an evaluation and then call the personal injury attorneys at the Eltringham Law Group to help you file your claim.
