What is a Slip & Fall?

A slip and fall injury, also known as a trip and fall, is a premises liability claim, a type of personal injury claim or case based on a person slipping (or tripping) on the premises of another and, as a result, suffering injury. A person who is injured by falling may be entitled to monetary compensation for the injury from the owner or person in possession of the premises where the injury occurred.

Slip and fall accidents can cause many types of injuries including:
  • Broken bones.
  • Lacerations and bruises
  • Muscle strains
  • Sprained ankles or wrists.
  • Spine and nerve damage.
  •  Brain injuries

On the surface, it would seem that slip and fall cases are cut and dry.  He/she slipped and fell at the grocery store.  Grocery store is liable for the injuries sustained.  Case closed..   Not so fast…. Was the store liable in the first place?  Did the person get injured cause the injury themselves?  Did the banana peel fall to the ground seconds before the slip and fall, therefore there was no time for the store employees to pick it up?    Those are just a few of the many questions that need to be answered.
