A slip-and-fall accident typically happens quickly. One minute you are walking through the store looking for your favorite brand of cereal, and the next minute, you are on the floor. You may end up with a bruise on your hip or a sprained wrist from trying to catch your fall. Unfortunately, not every fall has such simple consequences.
Slipping or tripping can have catastrophic results, and it is not uncommon for a fall to result in serious, life-changing injuries. If you or a loved one has fallen because a property owner or manager failed to take reasonable safety precautions, you would do well to learn all you can about how to fight for your rights and pursue the justice you deserve in civil court.
