Most people are familiar with the sight of "wet floor" signs, and these reminders can help you avoid the possibility of losing your footing on a slippery surface and suffering an embarrassing and painful fall.

Types of Slip and Fall Injuries

While a slip and fall may seem like a minor incident, it can cause serious harm to a person's body. The injuries suffered can be incredibly painful, and they can have a long-lasting impact on a victim's health and well-being. Some injuries which commonly occur in slip and fall accidents include:

  • Fractures, including broken arm, wrist, knee, or hip bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck or back injuries that can damage the spinal cord
  • Sprained or dislocated wrists, shoulders, knees, or ankles

Causes of Fall Injuries

In addition to injuries that occur when slipping on a wet or slick surface, fall injuries can occur in a wide variety of other situations, including:

  • Cracked or broken sidewalks or pavement.
  • Parking lots that contain potholes or which have insufficient lighting to allow a person to see potential hazards.
  • Stairwells with damaged steps, broken handrails, or inadequate lighting.
  • Tripping hazards such as missing floor tiles, carpets without non-slip backing, or extension cords stretching across walkways.
  • Balconies or raised walkways with broken or missing railings. A fall from an upper level to a lower level can be especially dangerous, and it can result in severe injuries or wrongful death.

If a property owner or the person in control of a property does not take steps to correct conditions that present risks to those who use the property, this may be considered negligence. A negligent property owner may be held responsible for the damages suffered in a slip and fall, and they may be required to pay damages to the injured party.
