What do I do After a Slip & Fall Accident?
January 08, 2018 - Brett Sachs

Slip and fall accidents: are no laughing matter. There is a reason you fell, and it may not have been your fault. Many fall related accidents are due to someone else’s negligence or recklessness, which would make them liable for your injuries. You cannot afford to write off your accident as clumsiness—odds are it wasn’t.
