Slip/trip and fall incidents may happen in almost any area in which you are walking, whether indoors and outdoors. The incidents may occur as a result of ice, snow, wet floors, debris, spilled liquids, uneven areas, stairs and steps, loose carpets, issues with stair height and depth, poor lighting, no handrails, poor maintenance or general hazards and obstructions in places like sidewalks, parking lots, business entrances, and workplaces.
If your slip/trip and fall accident occurs on municipal property you must make the municipality aware in writing about the incident within 10-days, otherwise you will be forever barred from making a claim for these injuries. In most other slip/trip and fall incidents, you will have 2-years less a day to make a claim against the at-fault party for your injuries.
