Charles E. Turnbow's Slip and Fall Notebook


        This website is a collection of book and equipment reviews, articles on changes in both the law and technology, photographs and commentary on personal injury and premises liability litigation.  The material here actually supplements my other website,  Occasionally, there will be notes, comments or articles which will eventually be expanded into one of the annual supplements to Slip and Fall Practice.  Browse around and sample some of the stuff I've accumulated in my 43 year practice as a safety expert and as an attorney.  Just find a topic and click on it.  If you get bored, come visit the ranch at and enjoy some of the western hospitality that made Arizona famous.
