Trip & Fall
Trip and fall cases are a major category of premises liability. Similar to other premises liability cases, these cases depend on the superior knowledge of the property owner of the existence of the hazardous condition. A municipality’s liability for defects existing in its municipal street system is known as the Streets and Sidewalks doctrine. Examples of trip and fall cases caused by these static defects include falls caused by uneven sidewalk pavement, large potholes, defective water meter covers, unsecure manholes and depressed street cuts.
Trip and falls can lead to severe injuries such as broken bones, torn ligaments, and traumatic brain injuries. Victims often receive zero compensation because inexperienced attorneys fail to investigate these fact-intensive cases properly.
