According to the National Safety Council, you have a 1-in-127 chance of dying from a fall. Grim, right?

Slip, trip and fall accidents can take place in a variety of different places such as a workplace, house, supermarket, hotel, restaurant, stadium and movie theater. The list can go on, but the common thread is that you can get injured due to the negligence of a landlord, property owner or property manager.
