This info-graphic titled ‘Slip and Fall Accidents’ provides us an overview of slip and fall accidents law suits.  "Slip and fall" is a condition used for a personal injury case in which a person trips and is injured on another person’s property. These cases remarkably fall under the broader category of cases known as "premises liability" claims. Slip and fall accidents usually occur on property owned or kept up by someone else, and the property owner may be held lawfully accountable.

There are many dicey conditions like torn carpeting, changes in flooring, bad lighting, narrow staircase, or a wet floor can cause someone to slip and be bruised. Same goes if someone trips on a dotted up or cracked public sidewalks, or falls down a flight of steps. Besides this, a slip and fall case might arise when someone slips or falls outdoors because of rain, ice, snow or any kind of hidden hazard, like a pothole in the ground.

There is no precise way to ascertain when someone else is legally responsible for your injuries if you slip or trip. Each case turns on whether the property owner acted cautiously so that slipping or tripping was not apt to happen, and whether you were casual in not seeing or confronting the condition that caused your fall.
