Thanksgiving is a time to come together around the table and take a moment to acknowledge what you are truly grateful for. Though Thanksgiving celebrations may be a bit unorthodox this year due to the global pandemic, the risk of accidents and catastrophic injuries will be at an all-time high during the holiday season.
Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common types of accidents that result in serious injuries that require extensive medical care and treatment. These cases are so common because falls can happen anywhere–from home, to work, to a restaurant. Specifically, these types of cases are referred to as premises liability cases because the premises owner may be responsible to the injured person.
