Whether it happens at a store or a friend's house, or anywhere in between, slip and fall accidents are fairly common. Sometimes the property owner is responsible for the injured party's injuries, but not always.
Some of the common slip and fall accidents occurring indoors are:
- Wet floor
- Improperly waxed floor
- Torn or bulging carpet
- Improper lighting
- Broken stair railing
Similarly, someone may become injured outdoors due to:
- Weather conditions like rain, ice, or snow
- Inadequate lighting
- Poor maintenance of parking lots or sidewalks
- Unexpected objects in path
Generally, liability of the owner is contingent upon whether he or she took the appropriate action to correct the problem or at least warn people of the problem.

Mr. Schmitt has personally obtained one of the largest Slip and Fall Jury Verdicts in Vero Beach, Florida (known in the profession as, "Zero Vero" for their conservative jury verdicts). In another recently contested liability slip and fall jury trial the judge granted a rare Directed Verdict on the issue of liability (ruled that Mr. Schmitt's client won liability as a matter of law) in favor of Mr. Schmitt's client after Mr. Schmitt got the Defendant's Manager to admit (for the first time) while on the witness stand at trial, that the accident was the Hotel's fault.
