Falls can include a slip or a trip. Fall accidents occur both outdoors and indoors, in any weather and at any time of the year. Weather conditions often change without warning. Water and ice can play a major role in a slip and fall accident. As such, owners, occupiers and municipalities are required by law to take precautionary steps to reduce the risk of slip and fall accidents occurring on their premises. Despite the legal obligation to ensure that all hazards are minimized, if not eliminated altogether, individuals are often injured due to someone else’s negligence or inability to fulfill their legal or contractual obligations.
