Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer
A slip and fall accident often seems minor at the time, even to the victim. A knee or elbow may be sore or your back might hurt. Even for a seemingly minor accident, you should still be examined by a doctor to determine if you have any serious injuries that may cause long-term pain or disability. At the Injury Law Center, Slip & Fall accident attorney Jack Bloxham has more than 20 years of experience representing injury victims who slipped and fell on other people’s property — whether a store, restaurant, shopping center, apartment complex or a private home. These claims fall into the category of personal injury law called premises liability. Our slip & fall injury lawyers can help you get the compensation you need for injuries you suffered after a slip and fall accident, and we provide free consultations.

Property owners who fail to provide a safe atmosphere for their guests and shoppers must be held liable for slip and fall injuries resulting from their negligence:
- Failure to provide hand railings
- Uneven flooring or carpet
- Wet or slippery floors
- Negligent maintenance and repair
- Failure to remove spilled product, food or debris on the floor
- Failure to warn patrons or guests about slippery floors or other hazards
Most slip and fall accidents do not involve a fall from a great height, and the majority of injuries are not life-threatening. Common injuries include back and neck injuries and soft tissue injuries. If a hazard causes a fall down stairs or through a hole, however, injuries can be more severe, such as head and brain injuries.
