A slip and fall accident generally refers to a situation in which a person slips and falls or trips and falls due to a dangerous condition on someone else’s property and is injured as a result.
Most of us know the pain of slipping on a wet floor or falling down a ladder. Probably, everyone has experienced a similar event at least once in their lives. In some cases, a fall may result in only a few days of pain; but in some cases, it may result in serious injuries, and may require long term hospitalization.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over one million Americans suffer a slip, trip, and fall injury and over 17, 000 people die in the United States annually because of these injuries. In fact fifteen percent of all job related injuries are caused by slip, trip, and fall accident while at work.

A few examples are trips over poorly aligned sidewalk edges, falls down stairs that are in poor condition or missing a handrail, falls due to inadequate lighting, slipping on spilled food or drink in a grocery store or restaurant, falling on snowy, icy or wet sidewalks, and walkways in front of a store or office building or tripping and falling on merchandise that has fallen from store shelves or that is improperly stacked in the aisles.
