If you are injured in a trip and fall or slip and fall accident caused by unsafe property conditions, you may be able to collect compensation from the property owner or the owner’s insurance policy on behalf of the owner or lessee who is liable. Many property owners have homeowners insurance or other insurance coverage that provides compensation to those injured on their properties.
