Slip and Falls Facts
The term slip and fall is used for personal injury cases when a person slips, falls, or trips and is injured on the property of another. This is one of the most common cases in personal injury law and is usually categorized broadly with “premise liability” claims. In some cases the owner of the property may be held legally responsible for injuries.
Fall accidents are very common in the United States. The two types of common falls are elevated falls and same-level falls. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, falls account for over 8 million emergency room visits each year, making it the leading cause of ER visits. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention and Bureau of Labor Statistics have compiled data showing that workers in the service industry, wholesale industry, and retail traders together have accounted for over 60% of injuries that occurred from same-level falls.
No matter what sector you work in, slip and fall accidents happen every day. The winter months can be particularly dangerous, creating slippery conditions and icy surfaces. While the weather can create hazardous situations after heavy rain or snowfall, other factors such as chips, holes in the sidewalk, and slippery pavements can also create dangerous premises. If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence of property owners, contact Todd Sailer today to find out about your rights.
