Slip and fall, also known as a trip and fall, is a personal injury claim or case based on a person slipping (or tripping) and falling. It is a tort. In a typical slip and fall case, an individual alleges negligence on the part of a property owner in maintaining their property. They assert that this negligence led to the slip and fall and injury.
Slips are the result of too little friction or a lack of traction between the footwear and the floor surface. A trip is the result of a foot striking or colliding with an object, which causes a loss in balance, and usually a fall. Studies show that 66% of falls occur on the same level as a result of slip or trip.
