How and Where a Slip-and-Fall Injury Occurs

Lea en español

Slip-and-fall injuries aren’t limited to grocery stores and fast-food restaurants. A slip-and-fall cause of action can arise anytime you suffer a slip-and-fall injury as a result of a defective condition on someone’s property. Defective conditions include a wet spot on the floor, a rotted piece of wood or even poor lighting.  But there are also a number of slip-and-fall defenses available to property owners, including assertions that they did not behave negligently or that the plaintiff was more at least equally to blame for the injury.
