Causes of Slip-and-Fall Injuries

Injuries that result from slip-and-fall accidents can be painful, necessitate costly medical treatment, and may never fully heal. You do not deserve to bear the full cost of the consequences of someone else’s mistakes.

Sometimes people trip due to their own clumsiness, and that is an accident; but sometimes there are unfavorable conditions that cause people to fall, and that is legally classified as negligence. The floor may be slippery, or wet. There may be an obstruction in the walkway. There could be poor lighting that led to limited visibility, a lack of policy enforcement, an uneven walkway, etc.

If something was amiss that led to your fall, you may have a case to make a premises liability claim or suit for costs related to back, neck, head, pelvic, and other injuries.

Seeking Compensation for Slip-and-Fall Injuries

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your slip-and-fall injury, you may be entitled to seek compensation. However, these types of cases can be challenging, because your attorney will need to prove:
  • that the property owner or employee caused the dangerous condition that led to your fall

  • that the property owner or employee knew about the dangerous condition but failed to correct it

  • and that the property owner or employee should have known about the dangerous condition because any reasonable person taking care of their property would have discovered the condition and solved the issue.

If all of those can be proven, you can seek costs in a settlement related to:

  • Ambulance rides
  • Imaging tests (X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, etc.)
  • Hospital stays (overnight, multiple days)
  • Doctor & specialist visits
  • Surgeries
  • Therapy and rehabilitation
  • Medical devices (crutches, boots, wheelchairs, casts, etc.)
  • Prosthetics
  • Medications
  • and more
