Slip and fall or trip and fall are standardized terms used to describe when a person slips, trips or falls due to negligent or dangerous conditions on someone else's property.  When property owners fail to meet minimum safety standards to visitors entering and exiting their properties, serious slip and fall injuries and even death can occur. 

According to the U.S. National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, approximately 8,000,000 people fall every year suffering severe injuries, many of which are life ending.  Although we are all susceptible to slip and fall accidents, those most at risk of sustaining severe injuries from slip and fall accidents are children, the elderly and disabled. 

Property owners can be held liable for injuries suffered on their premises, whether indoors or outdoors, due to their negligence. 

Unsafe and poorly maintained properties are more likely to create slip and fall accidents.  Highly visited and highly trafficked properties are also likely to create slip and fall conditions.  Regardless, invitees and visitors do not expect to slip and fall or suffer any injuries upon their entering another's premises.
