Slip and fall is a legal term used to describe a tort law. Generally, a slip and fall lawsuit involves a plaintiff who either slipped and fell or tripped and fell on another person’s property (the defendant). In this type of case, the property owner can be held liable for the plaintiff’s injuries if the owner was negligent. For example, a property owner can be found responsible for injuries if he or she should have known about a dangerous condition that caused the accident.
Damages in slip and fall cases are similar to other types of personal injury lawsuits and may include lost income, medical expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish and more.
