A slip and fall refers to falls due to any condition that makes a surface where you are walking potentially dangerous. The cause could be anything from uneven or slippery indoor or outdoor flooring, sharp edges or falling merchandise, or poor lighting.
If you have been injured because of a slip and fall caused by the property’s condition, you may be able to receive compensation from the property owner. Whether you are visiting a home, a store or a government building, laws outline what the owners are liable for, which is known as occupier’s liability.
These claims may seem relatively simple, but they are complex and the outcome depends on many things, such as where the incident occurred, who owns the property and how serious your injuries are.
