Slip-and-fall accidents can hurt more than a person’s pride. They are the leading cause of death in elderly victims and are commonly fatal to infants. Every age group is prone to the occasional misstep or sudden loss of balance. In fact, these accidents frequently occur among the most careful people.

At-fault parties have breached a legal duty and are liable for injuries caused by their negligence.
