If you’re like most people, you’ve probably heard of “slip and fall” claims and lawsuits. But what if something else caused your fall? What if you trip, stumble or turn an ankle and fall? Would you likely have a similar claim for damages?
In most cases, yes.
What matters is not how you fell, but why—and whether you were injured when you fell. If a condition caused by someone’s carelessness, recklessness, or lack of forethought causes you to fall and become injured, you may have a strong claim for damages. This can include such things as:
- Tripping over loose or frayed carpet
- Stumbling on broken or uneven stairs
- Missing or unsecured handrails causing a fall
