Slip & Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are personal injury and are one type of "fall down" accidents.  

There are four general types of slip and fall accidents:

  • Trip-and-fall accidents, where there is a foreign object in the walking path.

  • Stump-and-fall accidents, where there is an impediment in the walking surface.

  • Step-and-fall accidents, where there is an unexpected failure or hole in the walking surface

  • Slip-and-fall accidents, in which the interface of the shoe and the floor fails.


Both the property owner as well as the injured person can be held to varying degrees of responsibility for an injury. The property owner has a responsibility to keep property safe. Each person has a duty to watch where they are going, as well as realize that there are things that fall or spill onto walking surfaces.
