What are the Most Common Causes of Slip & Falls?
Slip and fall accidents happen practically all the time. By some estimates, more than 1 million people across the country each year will suffer a slip and fall accident that is serious enough to require medical attention. How are so many of these terrible accidents happening? Property owner negligence is at the root of many of them.
When a property owner fails to inspect their property for hazards, they put visitors at risk of suffering a slip and fall accident. They need to pay attention to anything that could cause someone to slip or trip, and then address that hazard as soon as possible.
Common causes of slip and fall accidents include:
- Damaged sidewalks
- Slippery tile floors
- Ice or snow at entranceways
- Frayed or lifted carpeting
- Dimly lit areas
- Missing handrails near steps
What Injuries Happen in a Slip & Fall Accident?
You should not be convinced by an insurance company that your slip and fall accident was “not a big deal.” The truth is that slip and fall accidents can and do cause severe injuries. Elders are at an especially high risk of suffering a life-changing or life-threatening injury in a fall that likely would not have resulted in much harm to a younger person.
Severe injuries that can happen because of a slip and fall accident are:
- Brain damage
- Broken arm or leg
- Spine damage
- Dental damage
Who Can Be Held Liable for a Slip & Fall?
The property owner who allowed the slip or trip hazard to persist on their property could be held liable for the damages. It is a matter of proving that they were negligent in their duty to protect people who enter their property. Evidence could come in the form of eyewitness testimonies, security camera footage, property inspection histories, and more. Our attorneys know where to look to find these types of evidence and how to use it to your claim’s advantage.
How Much Compensation Can You Get for a Slip & Fall?
The worse your injuries from a slip and fall accident, the more money your claim could be worth. This is because your injury’s severity is what will drive up the cost of medical care, keep you out of work for longer, and force you to endure heightened amounts of physical pain and mental anguish. With this said and for example, a slip and fall accident involving a broken wrist will probably be worth less than a case involving a brain injury.
We are committing to getting the most compensation for your claim as possible. While you rest and recover, we can work diligently to research your injuries and their consequences, so we can maximize the damages owed to you.
