Trip and Fall Accidents and Injuries
Considering all categories of accidents in all locations (in as well as outside of industry), the number of injuries caused by slip and falls and trip and falls are exceeded only those caused by motor vehicle accidents. Falls can result in head injuries, neck injuries, back injuries, broken bones, lacerations, and sprained muscles.
When it comes to accidents in industry, falls, including trip and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents. Slips, trips and falls are often categorized as the leading cause of workers’ compensation claims.
The difference between slip and falls and trip and falls
A fall is usually caused by something that causes you to lose your balance. A “slip” usually occurs when there is too little traction or friction between the shoe and walking surface and that lack of friction causes a slip which causes the loss in balance. A “trip” occurs when a person’s foot contacts an object in their way or drops to a lower level unexpectedly, causing them to be thrown off-balance. A slip most often results in the person falling backward and a trip most often results in a person falling forward.

Liability for injuries caused by unsafe premises
Property owners are required by law to keep their premises safe for tenants, visitors and passersby. If property owners (including local, county and state governments as well as the federal government) do not keep their premises clear of dangers and injuries result, they can be held liable for damages that are caused by the dangerous premises.
Dangerous locations can include schools, stores, libraries, restaurants, apartments, private homes and churches. It also includes sidewalks in residential neighborhoods, although the responsibility could lay with either the government or private property owners depending on a variety of factors.

It is important to make your claim properly before the statute of limitations expires.
