Difference Between a Slip and Fall vs. Trip and Fall

http://www.shanesmithlaw.com/  You may be wondering, “What’s the difference between a trip and fall and a slip and fall?” Norcross premises liability lawyer Shane Smith explains in this video.

A trip and fall case is just slightly different from a slip and fall case. A slip and fall is where someone slips on a wet floor or in a parking lot. A trip and fall case occurs when someone actually trips over an object.  This type of fall is very common in department stores because there are items on shelves, in the aisles and on fixtures in the middle of the floor. These items can create obstacles that are very easy for patrons to trip over. Trip and fall accidents are also very common in outdoor settings where there are holes and cracks in sidewalks or parking lots that can quickly cause someone to trip and fall. These are what we call trip and fall cases.

If you’ve suffered a trip and fall or slip and fall in Norcross and are facing injuries, contact our office today to schedule your complimentary consultation. Shane Smith will help you get back on your feet again. http://www.shanesmithlaw.com/practice_areas/proving-liability-in-an-atlanta-slip-and-fall-accident.cfm
