What are slip and fall accidents? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

“Slip and fall” is a term used for a personal injury case in which a person slips or trips and is injured on someone else’s property. They are also known as premises liability cases. Slip and fall accidents are usually sudden and can have a long-term or permanent impact on a victim’s life. Injuries can be traumatic and severe, and often result in a slow and painful recovery period.
