What Is a Slip and Fall Injury?
Slip and fall accidents are the leading cause of emergency room visits and missed workdays.
Many accidents can be prevented if an owner takes proper care. Almost any place will have risks if not properly maintained, and these can lead to slip and fall accidents. Risks include:
- Wet floors
- Safety code violations
- Poor lighting
- Uneven or loose flooring and stairs
- Loose handrails
- Poorly maintained public areas
- Obstructed walkways
- Holes in the ground
- Unsafe construction areas with no caution tape or warning signs
If you have been injured, you probably missed work while being treated by a doctor or other medical professional and while recovering. If another party was negligent or otherwise responsible for your injuries, you are entitled to recover the costs of medical care and lost wages as well as other damages.
