Slip and Fall Injuries
If you’ve been involved in a slip/trip and fall incident, you initial impulse may be to feel ashamed or embarrassed. However, according to safety experts, it’s likely that clumsiness was not the cause of your fall. Recent research found that more than 70% of slip/trip and fall injuries were caused by external circumstances, rather than being the fault of the injured individual. If your injuries were caused by the negligence of the property owner you may have a legal claim against the owner or lessee of the property on which you were injured.
No matter how careful you are, you could walk into a situation in which unsafe conditions make a slip/trip and fall injury unavoidable. If the worst happens and you’re injured in a slip/trip and fall incident, follow these guidelines to protect your health and legal rights.
