Whether a slip and fall accident occurs at a friend's house, a grocery store, or another property, unfortunately, these accidents occur all too frequently. In certain situations, the property owner may be responsible for an injured party's medical conditions. After the accident occurs, it is important to get medical attention and to preserve any evidence in the event that you decide to move forward with the personal injury claim.
While not every slip and fall accident will lead to a premises liability claim, if you can show that the property owner knew about and failed to remove or should have known about a hazardous condition on his or her property and you sustained injuries from that obstacle, you may be able to pursue a legal claim.
