What Constitutes a Slip and Fall Accident?

Slip and fall injuries are more common than one might think. Some victims may feel embarrassed or unnecessarily blame themselves for an injury even when they are not at fault. If there were no signs nor warnings that a surface may be in an altered state, then there could be a case of negligence.

For example, if there is a large puddle and the building owners had been warned about its potential to cause injury, but the building owners did nothing to attempt to warn of that potential harm, such as putting up a sign, or they did not dispatch a person to clean the puddle, then there is proof of negligence. In this case, the victim could have a personal injury claim against the building owners. Negligence is always a key factor of a personal injury case, and there is no exception to a slip and fall accident

Most slip and falls result in back, neck, ankle, and knee injuries.
