Retail Store And Restaurant Slip-And-Fall Accidents

Retail stores are busy places with considerable foot traffic, and slip-and-fall accidents are not uncommon. Victims of slip-and-fall accidents in retail stores may suffer injuries ranging from head injuries and broken bones to sprained ankles and back strains. These injuries may lead to hefty hospital bills and loss of income due to missed work while recovering.
