Compassionate. Aggressive. Results Driven.
In the United States, if your property causes someone to slip, trip, or fall such that it causes injury, you may be held liable for the said injury. Slips and falls claims are a tort law, meaning that they are considered a civil wrong, whether committed by intent or negligence, that causes harm to another person.

General defenses to slip and fall claims:
Because of the preconception that slips and falls are, at least in part, the fault of the person who is injured, the cases are often worth less than other personal injury cases. This does not, however, mean that you are not entitled to fair compensation for your injuries.
- Owners were not negligible: In this case, a property owner may claim that they did not have time to discover the foreseeable danger and take steps to avoid injury or damage. For example, if a banana peel falls on the ground by another patron, a property owner may claim that a manager who was acting with reasonable care simply would not have had time to discover the danger and clean up the banana peel.
- The injured person is at fault: The more typical defense is to claim that the person who is injured is at fault. In this case, a property owner could claim that a patron acting with reasonable care would have seen the banana peel on the ground and would have been able to take the necessary precautions to avoid slipping.
