Although these cases receive a category of their own, they really belong to a larger legal category called “premises liability.” Each year, thousands of slip and fall cases occur across the country.
Even though the name sounds harmless in nature, a slip and fall because of the carelessness of a property owner can cause a number of long term consequences such as:
- Permanent or partial physical disability
- Inability to work for months at a time or to perform regular job duties
- Extensive medical expenses
- Lost time with friends and family
- An inability to engage in your favorite hobbies
