Areas where people can slip and fall are numerous: it can happen in parking lots, stairwell, city parks, supermarkets, office floors, people’s homes. Home and business owners have a duty to ensure that wet, slick floors are promptly mopped, and debris and obstacles found on floors picked up.

To file a claim, your lawyers will have to find out who has responsibility over the area where you fell.
