It happens to millions of people each year: casually going about your business until suddenly: SLAM. You’ve slipped and fallen down. Slip and fall accidents are quite common and seem to happen at the most unexpected times and places. An accident like this can cause nothing but a minor bruise, or be more serious and cause a serious injury resulting in a lawsuit.
Many times, tripping over something and falling down is our own fault. Maybe we were looking at our phone or wearing shoes that aren’t ideal for the environment we’re in. Other times, however, a slip and fall accident is due to the negligence of another party. This is especially true if you are in a public space or on the property of a business.
