Slip, Trip & Falls
Often, one of the biggest questions in Slip and Fall cases involves the coefficient of friction. In other words, how slippery was the waling surface at the time of the incident? Garrett’s experts use state of the art tools to test wet and dry surfaces to determine the coefficient of friction. This information can help determine if the walking surface meets the applicable standards to prevent slip and fall type incidents.
