PROVING LIABILITY IN TRIP AND FALL CASES
Trip and fall injuries occur when a person literally trips on an object, which is located on land owned or managed by an individual or property manager. Unlike a slip and fall accident, a trip and fall accident implies the injured person shares the blame for his or her injuries. The mere mention of the word "trip" is often sufficient to imply the injured individual was at least partially negligent, which resulted in a trip and fall accident.
Injuries resulting from a trip and fall accident range from minor to severe. In cases where a victim has substantial injuries, that person may wish to file a lawsuit against the landowner or property manager. Although in a trip and fall case the plaintiff may share in responsibility, this does not necessarily mean he or she is completely barred from recovering for his or her injuries.
