Slip and falls are a type of premise liability case. They typically involve a person slipping due to a slippery foreign substance on the floor of a business. A person can suffer severe injuries during a slip and fall accident. Injuries can include brain injuries, broken bones, sprained limbs, injuries to the spine, and other soft tissue problems. These injuries often times require immediate medical attention.

In order to recover damages from a property owner for injuries sustained in a trip and fall, it must be shown that the property owner was somehow at fault for causing the fall. Therefore, most slip and fall cases require that the injured party show that they slipped and fell due to a dangerous condition on the property; that the property owner knew of the dangerous condition; and that the fall actually caused injuries and damages.
