Slip and Fall Accidents Versus Trip and Fall Accidents

“Slip and falls” involve slipping on a foreign substance, such as ice, grease, oil or a spilled drink.

A “trip and fall” accident is one in which a person falls from tripping over an object or because of an unsafe condition, such as:

  • A broken or uneven sidewalk or walkway
  • Debris in a staircase
  • Broken steps inside or outside a building
  • Dim lighting in a stairwell
  • A faulty handrail

If the property owner caused, knew about or should have repaired or cleaned up the unsafe condition that led to your accident, you may have an excellent premises liability case. The Law Office of Steven Wildstein, P.C. will help you get the compensation you deserve, so you can get back to living your life.
