Types of Slip & Fall Cases
What can be most daunting about slip and falls is that they can occur anywhere at any time, from inside a store or on a public street.
Common types of slip and fall cases we’ve seen have occurred due to:
- Poorly lit areas
- Cluttered hallways and aisles, and other walkways
- Slippery floors as a result of wetness from spills or rain, mud, or snow, or naturally slippery surfaces like glass
- Staircases and ramps with broken handrails or stairs
- Uneven surfaces, including torn or bunched carpet, uneven bricks, potholes, and more
- Ladders and scaffolding
- Unstable surfaces like floors with loose tiles
Property owners have a responsibility to keep their areas safe for visitors and guests. Failure to clean up spills or fix broken stairs and other environmental factors can cause accidents and injuries, and even fatalities. Our team of lawyers has decades of experience holding negligent property owners responsible.
Common Injuries Sustained After Falls
While many associate falls with minor injuries like bruises and cuts, a slip and fall can produce serious injuries that can kill a person or leave them with lifelong injuries that can alter their way of life. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report than 20-30% of those involved in fall accidents suffer from moderate to severe injuries.
Injuries can include sprains and fractures, broken bones, spinal cord and neck injuries, and head and brain trauma. Falls most commonly cause broken bones that can require weeks and months to completely recover from.
