Trip And Fall As Opposed To Slip And Fall

First of all, it’s important to understand the difference between a slip and fall and a trip and fall. In the grocery store’s dairy section, you slip on a small puddle of spilled yogurt. That would be a slip-and-fall. In a Premises Liability case, the plaintiff must prove the store knew the yogurt spill was there and did nothing about it. Most stores have someone responsible for ‘clean-ups’ and to check for spills and hazards every thirty minutes.

A Trip And Fall
Would be falling on a broken step that the property owner of an apartment complex had already received numerous requests to have fixed.


Furthermore, if you have suffered a personal injury as a result of either fall, then to you it just hurts. To a personal injury lawyer like Dan Street at STREET LAW FIRM, there’s a critical difference. STREET LAW FIRM can help under either scenario. However, it’s contingent on you being as detailed as possible as to how your personal injury occurred.
