How do slip and fall incidents happen?

There are a variety of reasons that slip and fall injuries occur. However, we know they are common. We know that around one million people seek treatment in hospitals each year for slip and fall injuries according to the National Floor Safety Institute. The CDC says that older Americans are the most at risk of major injuries from falls.

We commonly see these injuries happen due to:

  • Spills of food and drinks on the floor
  • Electrical cords and other wires on the floor
  • Defects in the pavement
  • Carpeting that is loose or torn
  • Inadequate lighting in an area
  • No wet floor signs after an area has been mopped
  • And more

What are the most common slip and fall injuries?

Please understand that slip and fall incidents can cause a wide variety of injuries. It is not uncommon for us to deal with the following:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Open head wounds
  • Concussions
  • Spinal cord injuries/paralysis
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations
  • Major bruises/bone bruises

What should I do following a slip and fall incident?

Immediately after a slip and fall incident, your priority needs to be seeking medical care for any injuries. Even minor injuries need to be treated by a doctor. You also need to do everything possible to document the cause of the slip and fall incident with photos or video evidence.

If the slip and fall happened on commercial property, report the incident to management and ensure an accident report is filled out. If there were any witnesses to the incident, get their statements and information to use in a possible court case.

What if a slip and fall incident happens on private property?

Private property owners can also be held liable for injuries on their property. We know that many people are reluctant to bring lawsuits against friends and family, but please remember that you are not filing a lawsuit against them, but rather against their insurance company.
