Should You Get Paid For Your Slip and Fall Accident

Many Americans don't like the idea of slip and fall accidents, because you can technically fake a slip and fall accident and then waste taxpayer money by bringing it to court. You also might slip and fall and a lot of people consider this your own fault. Obviously, this is an extreme view and slipping and falling is no laughing matter.
