When we think of a “Slip & Fall” accident we often think of someone falling on ice or on a slippery floor, but it actually covers a whole category of accidents. For example, it could be that something fell on you (like ice falling off a roof) or that there wasn’t enough light in a room or hallway.
The most important thing about slip & fall claims is that someone has to be at fault to be able to make a successful claim. The injury has to have happened because someone didn’t take proper steps to avoid the dangerous situation.
