Slip and Fall cases are called Premises Liability claims. These claims involve injuries sustained on the property or premises of a negligent third party.
Premises Liability and Slip and Fall claims result from a fall caused by a defective condition, foreign substance or object. Crucial to recovery is being able to show how long the defect or substance was there, how visible it was, and how much notice the owner had of the dangerous condition before the accident. Early investigation of these claims is imperative.
