In certain cases, slip and fall cases fall under the area of premises liability law, which holds a premise owner or property manager responsible for making sure that there are no unsafe conditions on a property that could cause injury or death to a resident, visitor, worker, or patron. Our lawyers work with accident reconstruction experts who can prove that your injuries were caused by the inadequate conditions on another party’s premise. Visit our premises liability page for more information.
