Slip and Fall claims

You can win your claim if your slip and fall attorneys prove the elements that are necessary for any successful personal injury case. A slip and fall is a civil injury. It is caused by an act of the individual that falls on the sidewalk, street, or any other public place. It can also be caused by a dangerous condition on the sidewalk, such as ice, snow, cold or wet surfaces which can also cause this type of accident.
