Slip and Falls

Slip and falls are the second leading cause of injuries in the United States. Twenty to thirty percent of people who fall suffer moderate to severe injuries such as lacerations, hip fractures or head traumas. In fact, falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries. An injury or death from a fall that is caused by a hazardous condition on another person’s property may entitle the victim or the victim’s family to compensation.

Slip and fall accidents occur virtually everywhere – in a supermarket or shopping mall; in an office building or on a sidewalk. Your slip and fall may have been caused by a defect in the floor in that it was uneven or it may be attributable to inadequate lighting or an obstruction to your ability to foresee an injury. One of the most common ways in which a slip and fall injury occurs is a fall in a grocery store. A supermarket has a duty to regularly inspect its floors for pools of water or objects fallen from shelves. Once a danger is spotted, the supermarket must fix the matter immediately and/or post warnings.

Slip and fall accidents have two main types of mechanism for injury. In one slip and fall scenario, your front foot slips forward, causing you to fall backward. In the alternative scenario, your rear foot slips backward, causing you to fall forward. A related type of accident, a trip and fall, occurs when your foot comes into contact with an obstacle, such as a protrusion, along your path.

The traumatic impact of a slip or trip and fall accident can cause severe and long-lasting injuries.
