Slip and Fall

“Slip and fall” is a term for personal injury cases which arise when injury is caused during a slip and fall as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of “premises liability” cases, which center on the question of a property owner’s duty to care for the property. Slip and fall cases are governed under negligence law. To win a premises liability claim, Sloat, Nicholson & Hoover, P.C. has to prove either that the defendant created the hazard that led to the accident or that the defendant knew or should have known about the danger and should have had it removed or repaired. This can often be difficult to prove, since establishing when a given hazard first appeared can be challenging. That is why Sloat, Nicholson & Hoover, P.C. aggressively represents victims of slip and fall accidents to help ensure that they receive full compensation for their injuries.
