Slip-and-Fall Accidents

Slip-and-fall accidents happen all the time, resulting in thousands of injuries annually. Most of these accidents could have been avoided but occurred because of someone else’s negligence.

One recent example is the case of a West Virginia woman who is suing for compensation over injuries she sustained falling in a local Kmart. The victim slipped on a wet concrete floor and hit her head.

In this case, Kmart is being sued for negligence and breach of duty because it is alleged they did not make sure the premises was reasonably safe, nor did they warn individuals that there were potentially unsafe conditions. 

The victim is suing for damages, plus attorney fees, and court costs because she has suffered physical, mental, and emotional pain, she has suffered grave inconvenience, the inability to work, and mounting medical bills.
