Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip, trip and fall cases are common causes of action and relate closely to the duty of an owner or possessor of a premise to maintain the property in a safe manner. This should be done for the benefit of others lawfully entering upon the land and responsibilities of owners and possessors of property to safeguard others from dangerous conditions or hazards on the property and to prevent others from personal injury while on the property. Some examples of poor maintenance include: negligent security, ice or snow buildup, facility malfunctions, unsafe storage of products or merchandise, uneven sidewalks and other issues.
Slip, trip and fall accidents may result in serious injuries such as broken bones, back injuries, head trauma or wrongful death. These types of injuries can make it difficult for people to be mobile, perform their activities of daily living or even live on their own. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 800,000 people are hospitalized with fall injuries every year. Older adults, age 65 years and older, suffer the greatest number of fatal falls. In addition, the medical costs of falls reaches well into the billions of dollars.
