Q: Was renting a home in the Outer Banks and there was a slip and fall injury resulting in a broken foot. What can I do?
A: A North Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It could depend on the rental agreement and what provisions it makes for coverage. But more fundamental than that, it could depend on how the slip and fall accident that resulted in your injury took place. A slip and fall accident in and of itself does not necessarily result in rights to compensation by the injured victim - sometimes, a property owner is not at fault. It would hinge on whether there was a defect or dangerous condition of some type, or some form of negligence. Good luck
