>What is a Slip and Fall Accident?
A slip or trip-and-fall incident is a type of personal injury accident. They happen when someone falls, trips, or slips on an area that was dangerous and unsuitable for walking. The property owner is liable for any injuries that result from these types of accidents in most circumstances. In some cases, however, they may not be responsible if there was no negligence involved on their part (for example, if the victim previously traversed the dangerous area).
