Slip and Fall
Slip and fall accidents are very common and most of them could have been avoided if the person responsible had taken better measures to ensure the safety of their guests/customers. Victims of slip and fall cases (without proper measurements taken to keep them safe) are entitled to a settlement that will take care of their medical bills and compensation for their pain and suffering.
What Are Some Causes of Slip and Fall
- Slippery surfaces such as water or ice
- Poor/no signage
- Insufficient lighting
