Our personal injury attorneys are here to explain to you how the law plays into effect with your slip and fall accident.

- The owner of the premises (or an employee) must have known of the dangerous condition but failed to correct it properly
- The owner of the premises (or an employee) “should have known” a dangerous condition was present
