Slip & Fall Claims

Out of all the kinds of accidents that occur on a daily basis, slip and fall claims are some of the most common. Note that this kind of case can actually go by a variety of different names. You might have heard of it referred to as a step and fall or a trip and fall, for example. These names all mean the same thing. If you were injured tripping over an impediment or slipping into a hole while walking, then you might have been the victim of a slip and fall accident.

Slip and fall injuries can be very serious and painful. In many cases, something will case your ankle to “roll” or otherwise become unsteady, sending your balance flying and your body to the ground. This can be extremely serious for your ankle! You can easily break or significantly damage your ankle or leg in this kind of accident, so if you find yourself in a slip and fall accident it is important to take it seriously.
