Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common causes of accidental injuries each year. These may occur when a person either trips over something or slips on a slick surface and falls down. While these injuries may seem unlikely to cause serious injury, they can prove to be very dangerous, depending on the height of the fall and a number of other circumstances. Oftentimes, these injuries occur on another person’s premises. Accordingly, financial compensation may be available to you if you have suffered a slip and fall injury due to someone else’s negligent or careless actions.
