Slip & Fall Accidents

Did You Suffer A Serious Injury?

Slip & fall accidents are among the most common causes of injury to Americans every year – according to a report released by the United States Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), about one out of every four workers’ compensation claims come after slip & fall injuries. Millions of people, both on worksites and off, suffer slip & fall injuries, and approximately 12,000 people are killed in these types of accidents. As common as these accidents are, OSHA reported that the vast majority were completely preventable. If you were seriously injured in a slip & fall accident caused by someone’s negligence or wrongdoing, you may be able to file a lawsuit to secure compensation.

How Do Slip & Fall Accidents Happen?

While these types of accidents mostly affect people over the age of 65, anyone could suffer a serious injury if the right set of circumstances occur. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that almost 3 million people over the age of 65 go to the emergency room for injuries caused by slip & fall accidents, and hundreds of thousands of patients end up being admitted in order to receive treatment for serious injuries. Some of the most common types of injuries people face include:

  • Lacerations
  • Broken bones
  • Serious hip injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

Senior citizens may be the most at-risk portion of the population, but dangerous situations place even the most physically capable people at risk. Some of the most common causes of these types of accidents include:

  • Slippery floors
  • Wet floors
  • Uneven tiles
  • Cracked or broken sidewalks
  • Unmarked drop-down
  • A change in floor materials, i.e. going from a material with more traction to one with less traction
  • Loose carpeting
  • Cluttered walkways
  • Overcrowded aisles
  • Poor lighting
  • Narrow stair treads
  • Broken railings

It’s the responsibility of the people in charge of the area to mark off any potential hazards – if they fail to do so, then they may be liable for any injuries a victims suffers in a slip & fall accident.

How Do I Prove Liability?

Our firm knows how to prove liability, no matter what your case entails. One case may involve questions of “Did the owner have notice of the dangerous condition?” while another may ask “Did the owner create the hazard in the first place?” Multiple questions will need to be answered, and you want to make sure you have the right team on your side to answer them. You may be able to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for any medical bills, disability, lost earnings, emotional distress and pain and suffering caused by your slip & fall accident. If the injuries resulted in the death of the victim, then their surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death suit.
