Slip & Fall

Slip and Fall
Two common categories of injury claims are "Slip & Fall" and "Trip & Fall" cases. Both are classified under the title of "Premises Liability" actions. These are not claims made due to a person's own inattentive stumble, although insurance companies more often than not attempt to characterize them in such a dismissive manner.

Premises Liability claims, like claims for automobile accidents, are made for injuries sustained as the result of someone else"s negligence. Hidden hazards on property or egregiously dangerous conditions that property owners negligently fail to remedy cause injury to thousands of innocent people every year.

Valid Premises Liability claims have traditionally been made for dangerous and hazardous conditions that include:

  • Standing puddles of water
  • Uncleared snow
  • Clear ice (sometimes referred to as black ice)
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Defective flooring
  • Improperly secured mats
  • Stairways and steps not constructed in compliance with building codes
  • Hidden drop offs
  • Concealed holes
