Slip and Fall: Is it just clumsiness?

Trips, slips, and falls are a staple of slap stick comedy and viral home videos. For whatever reason, our society loves to laugh at the human form flying downward. Because almost all of us have fallen at some point, we cringe in sympathy as unprepared pedestrians suddenly lose their footing.

What’s not so funny, however, is the very real injury that can occur after a slip and fall. Broken limbs, concussions, paralysis, and death can really take the humor out of most situations.

If you’ve been seriously injured in a slip and fall, you may feel embarrassed, but you may also be entitled to compensation from the owner of the property. The following points can help you decide if your slip and fall was just a matter of clumsiness or a claim which should be filed with a help of an experienced lawyer.
