Were You Injured In A Slip & Fall Accident?

Millions of people suffer from slip & fall injuries every year in the United States. These types of accidents are the some of the most frequently reported injuries on job sites – the United States Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reported that approximately 25 percent of all reported workers’ compensation claims are the result of slip & fall injuries, and an estimated 12,000 people die every year as a result of their slip & fall injuries. On top of that, OSHA reports that the vast majority of these accidents could have been prevented. If you were injured in a slip & fall accident, you should seek legal assistance as you may be able to secure compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and time lost from work.

What Can Cause A Slip & Fall Accident?

Slip & fall accidents can happen to anyone, though they are most common among people over the age of 65. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 3 million senior citizens go to the emergency room for slip & fall-related injuries, and hundreds of thousands of patients wind up admitted to the hospital for serious injuries. Some of the most common injuries victims suffer include:

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

While senior citizens are more likely to suffer a slip & fall injury, the startling number of workers’ compensation claims show that even someone in peak physical condition could be at risk if the circumstances line up. Some of the common causes of slip & fall accidents include:

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

A lot of these potential hazards should be marked by the people in charge of the space. If the property owner fails to properly warn visitors of the danger, they could be held liable for any slip & fall injures caused by those hazards.

Proving Your Case

If you are injured from a slip & fall accident on someone else’s property, you may be able to file a lawsuit in order to seek compensation for any emotional distress, lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical bills caused by the injury. In tragic cases where the victim was killed as a result of their injuries, their surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death suit. In order to secure compensation, you need to prove certain things to the court, including but not limited to:

  • The property owner’s obligation to clearly warn visitors of potential hazards.
  • The property owner’s failure to follow through on that obligation.
  • Your injuries were directly caused by the slip & fall accident.
  • You deserve compensation for your injuries.

An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to help you prove to the court that there was negligence and / or wrongdoing, and that you deserve compensation for your injuries.
