What is a trip and fall accident?
A trip and fall is a kind of injury lawsuit where my client actually, and it sounds silly, but trips and then falls. It very much describes itself. Now, let’s contrast that to a slip and fall, which also very much describes itself. There’s some kind of substance or a condition on the ground that causes our client to slip. One leg usually slips out from underneath. A trip and fall, in contrast, involves examples like raised sidewalk, uneven pavers, tripping in potholes. It’s exactly what it sounds like. You’re tripping or stumbling over something causes you to fall and then be injured.
