Slip and fall accidents are consistently the leading cause of injury in the United States and can result in life-threatening injuries. Though the injuries from a slip and fall accident may seem minor at first, they may eventually cause many serious injuries including broken bones or fractures which is why they should be taken very seriously.
Owners of various property are liable and have the responsibility of keeping the environment safe for everyone. If you find yourself in a slip and fall situation, you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries that you endured.

o Do not say anything to the owner or manager of the establishment that may later be used against you
o Obtain the contact information of any witnesses that may have seen you fall, as their statements may be used to help your case
o Document the scene of the accident as evidence, this will be proof of unsafe conditions (If not, the owner may renovate the scene to make it seem as though it was not in dangerous condition to begin with)

In cases of slip and fall accidents, it is crucial to prove the negligence of property owners or managers of the structure as they should have been well aware of the dangerous condition within the structure. With that knowledge, they should have made it well aware to individuals of the unsafe condition or fixed it so that no injuries could potentially happen. The premises should be safe of any potential injury or danger.
