slip and fall injury

“Slip and fall” is a term for personal injury cases. It arises when an injury is caused during a slip and fall as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. These types of accidents are the most common type of “premises liability” cases. They center on the question of a property owner’s duty of care for the property. Furthermore, slip and fall cases are governed under negligence law and best handled by an experienced slip and fall lawyer.

To win a premises liability claim, The Law Offices of Marc. J Shuman & Associates, LTD. have to prove either that the defendant created the hazard that led to the accident or that the defendant knew or should have known about the danger. Additionally, the defendant should have removed or repaired the dangerous elements.

This can often be difficult to prove, since establishing when a given hazard first appeared can be challenging. That is why The Law Offices of Marc.
