Slip and Fall Accidents

A “slip and fall” is a claim based on a person slipping, tripping, or falling due to the negligence of another. Generally, it is that a property owner was negligent in allowing a dangerous condition to exist that caused the person to become injured. Property owners, (and their insurance companies in an effort not to pay a claim) will often assert that they were not negligent and that the injured person is the one at fault. Common causes of slip and fall accidents include:

  • Uneven pavement
  • A slippery surface
  • Ice or snow
  • Debris
  • Poor lighting
  • Inadequate warning signs
  • Faulty handrail
  • Uneven or broken stairs
