People slip/trip and fall everyday, and yes many times this is an accident. In other instances people fall because of the negligence and fault of others. This could be an unnatural accumulation of ice and snow that a business caused which led to an injury, or this could be a foreign substance or liquid that somebody ignored and didn't clean up. You shouldn't have to pay for the medical bills and change in your life because of someone else's negligence.
Thankfully, in most of these cases people are not seriously injured; however, even non life threatening injuries can result in thousands of dollars of medical bills. Medical bills that would not have been incurred were it not for the negligence which caused the accident.
Insurance companies like to undervalue claims by injured individuals because it keeps their pockets lined, and because most people don't want to deal with the hassle of the claims process. This is where attorneys experienced in slip/trip and fall litigation will level the playing field.
