What is a slip and fall injury?

A slip and fall injury is one suffered when slips on something and falls down, perhaps breaking an arm or leg or twisting a joint. Slip and fall cases are like when someone steps into a puddle of ketchup in the grocery store aisle after someone dropped the bottle then left without telling anyone about it. This is a tort. The person who dropped the bottle might be sued for not having it cleaned up and the store might be sued for failing to notice it, thereby not preventing a dangerous situation when it has a duty to do so to its customers.
