Icy surfaces, puddles, trailing cable wires, and other hazards can cause personal injury accidents to occur in a moment’s time. Because these accidents can cause severe injuries that may lead to loss of wages or even life-long medical care, it is important to contact a Sacramento slip and fall attorney to evaluate if negligence was at play.
