Slip & Fall Accidents
Most people blame themselves (or their two left feet) when they take a spill at a store or at someone's house. Sometimes, though, it's pretty clear that someone else was being very careless. If the injury is significant enough, the injured person may decide to seek compensation. According to premises liability law, the person in control of the property has a duty to correct known dangers and can be held liable when someone is injured as the result of a dangerous condition on their property. Damages may include the cost of medical bills, lost income, and additional compensation for pain and suffering.
