Slip, trip, and fall cases often arise from the conditions of a property or premises owned by someone else, resulting in someone getting injured. These types of personal injury cases are also referred to as “premises liability” cases or as “slip and fall,” or “trip and fall” cases. Even when you are paying attention to where you walk, there is still a risk of an accident resulting in injuries.
Slip and Falling on Commercial Properties
Many slip, trip, and fall accidents happen in retail stores or other commercial properties involving dangerous conditions on the premises. Some examples of dangerous conditions that cause slip and fall accidents are:
Slippery substances on the floor
Defects in the stair design
Potholes in the parking lot
Workplace equipment being negligently operated by employees
Every slip, trip, and fall case is unique and can cause a wide range of different types of injuries. Broken bones and traumatic brain injuries are common in slip, trip, and fall cases. These injuries result in continuous medical care in order to fully recover, or they may cause permanent damage.
