Slip and fall cases are just that, slip and falls.  If you have fallen on a slippery or badly-maintained surface, you know how painful and serious the resulting injuries can be. These types of injuries can occur almost anywhere, from a wet surface, to an unguarded maintenance area, or uneven surface.  Property owners are required to maintain safe premises, and where injury occurs, you may have a claim against the owner and the insurance company covering the property.
