Slip & Fall Lawyer
A slip and fall, or what is also referred to as a trip and fall, can happen anywhere and at any time. If you’ve suffered an injury on someone else’s property due to their fault or error, you may be entitled to receive damages for your pain and suffering, loss of income, medical treatment, etc. Filing a claim for a slip and fall isn’t always straight forward and there are particular procedural matters that an injured person should be aware of. It is important to speak to a personal injury lawyer to determine the best way to proceed with a claim against the responsible party or parties.
