A slip and fall accident occurs when the surface of a pathway is in a condition that is, for example, wet or icy, causing a person to slip. A foreign object or an impediment in a pathway such as an uneven or broken sidewalk or pothole that causes a person to fall, is a trip and fall. In New York, most slip and fall/trip and fall cases reach a settlement with very few claims ever going to trial and according to the Mayo Clinic, the number of traumatic injuries treated in the ER nearly doubles during the summer.
