Slip And Fall Accidents
Premises liability is the legal term for the type of claim filed when a person is injured on the property of another party. The property could be a business such as a retail establishment, restaurant, or a private residence. Premises liability claims are often referred to as “slip and fall” claims or “trip and fall” claims.
