Slip and falls or trip and fall accidents can occur inside or outside buildings, on sidewalks, in parking lots, playgrounds, or on any other type of premises or structure. Most slip and falls or tip and falls are due to the existence of a dangerous and defective condition, such as poorly cleaned or maintained premises, worn or broken steps, missing handrails, cracked or raised sidewalks or walkways, bad flooring, wet floors, poor lighting on steps and walkways or weather related conditions such as snow and ice. In order to be successful in this type of claim, it is important to immediately gather photographs and physical evidence to document the existence of the dangerous condition as well as the proof that it was the cause of your accident.
