Slip-and-Fall Accidents

It can happen to anyone, you are walking through a store, business, or someone else’s property, and you fall, hurting more than just your pride. These types of accidents can lead to minor or even significant injuries.

Many factors can contribute to someone slipping or falling, including:

  • Wet floors
  • Waxy or cleaning residue
  • Improper lighting of a dark walkway
  • Uneven pavement or loose gravel
  • Slick surfaces such as marble or granite
  • Escalators or conveyor belt walkway
  • Broken flooring, steps or handrails
  • Construction materials (scaffolding, ladders)

Slip-and-Fall Injuries

Even though you may not feel any pain at the time the accident occurs, you may later experience pain or need to seek medical treatment for an injury such as:

  • Cuts, bruises or abrasions
  • Broken bones or teeth
  • Disfigurement
  • Internal bleeding
  • Head trauma
  • Spinal cord trauma, paralysis or quadriplegia

For some incidents, a slip-and-fall may result in surgery that results in complications or a recovery involving extensive rehabilitation. Sometimes, these types of falls can even be fatal.
