Slip And Fall Accident Lawyers

Slip And Fall

As a visitor of a public location, a customer of a retail store, or an invited guest to a private residence, it is common to hold an expectation that the property owner will maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition and free of danger. Unfortunately, accidents can happen, and in many cases, simply because the property owner failed to ensure the premises are safe. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates over one million Americans sustain injuries from a “slip, trip or fall” accident, and, sadly, over 17,000 people die in the U.S. annually because of these injuries. Victims of these types of accidents usually suffer moderate to severe injuries, and, according to the National Safety Council, are the single largest cause for emergency room visits.

If you, or a loved one, have been injured in a slip-and-fall or slip-and-trip accident you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, as well as for pain and suffering. The personal injury attorneys at Action Legal Group understand the many complex issues victims and their loved ones face after a slip and fall accident, and have years of experience in successfully handling these types of claims. If you, or a loved one, have been injured in a slip-and-fall or slip-and-trip accident, please call the attorneys at Action Legal Group today for a free consultation.
