What is considered a slip and fall accident?
Falling over something due to slipping or tripping can cause serious injury. These accidents can happen anywhere - at work, on another person’s property or even just walking down the sidewalk. If you have ever been injured in this way, Colorado slip and fall attorneys can help you recover the money you’ve lost due to medical expenses or lost wages from missing work.
These types of injuries fall under a law known as personal injury law. A personal injury law case is one in which people owe others a “duty of care”. In other words, they have a duty to act in a way that will not cause harm or injury to others. If a person is negligent and you are injured due to this negligence, the negligent party is obligated to compensate you. Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of personal injuries, but there are others including -
- Injury in the workplace
- Dog bites
- Medical malpractice
- Truck, car and motorcycle accidents
How can a Colorado Slip and Fall Attorney help you?
