Slip And Fall Injury

Slip And Fall Accident Attorney

Rely On The Top Ogden Personal Injury Lawyer  

A slip and fall injury is a premises liability claim, also known as a trip and fall. It is a type of personal injury case based on a person slipping or falling on the premises of another person's property and resulting in an injury. 

Slip and fall accidents can happen pretty much anywhere–while at home, work, a friend’s house, at church or even while out shopping. People often sustain serious and sometimes permanent injuries after a slip and fall accident, especially for elderly and children. Of all the accidental deaths in the United States each year, it has been estimated that slip, trip and fall accidents account for 15% of them.  In many cases, the owner or manager of the property where a person slips and falls has a legal responsibility to prevent those types of accidents. If someone gets hurt on their property and they fail to uphold their legal duty, they could become liable.

In a slip and fall case, an experienced personal injury attorney can help you understand your rights. It’s important to file your claim properly so you don’t miss out on any potential compensation. In addition, a personal injury lawyer can help you understand the most common causes for personal injury accidents, how to prevent them, and the legal action needed to hold landowners accountable for injuries.
