What is a Slip and Fall Accident?

A slip and fall case generally refers to an accident in which a person slips, trips, or falls down as a result of the negligence of another person or company. Oftentimes, the other party is a property owner who fails their legal duty to keep their sidewalks and parking lots safe. Slip and fall cases can involve wet floors, icy sidewalks, uncovered holes in the ground, improperly maintained stairways and more. If you fell and were injured, you must be able to prove that the property owner was negligent and that you didn’t cause your own harm. At Mashinski Law, we can answer all of your questions and help you get the monetary relief you deserve.
