Slips, trips, and falls may occur in any type of environment, making it very important to your case that the right slip and fall expert witness is retained for the proceedings and able to offer relevant information for the incident in question. Like other such incidents, an accident investigation and reconstruction may be conducted to determine the source and/or cause of a slip, trip, or fall. Premises liability is a major factor in court cases resulting from slips, trips, and falls, as the property owners in which the incident takes place may be responsible.
Slips, trips, and falls expert witnesses are often experienced with determining which type of environmental conditions may be potentially dangerous. Such experts are knowledgeable with floor safety regarding various types of coatings, carpeting, ramps, and other forms of walkways and floor coverings. Experts are also experienced with stair accidents, construction accidents, and other types of incidents taking place on the ground, as well as the rules and regulations regarding fall protection. The premises can also be held responsible for a slip, trip, and fall case if the structure has failed to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Footwear examiners and orthotics may also be relevant in the process of determining the outcome of such cases.
Suffering from slips, trips, and falls while employed in a workplace setting would change certain details in the case. Slips, trips, and falls expert witnesses are therefore skilled in such areas as Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA), workers compensation, and other relevant disciplines.
