Slip and fall accidents occur for a variety of reasons and often lead to severe injuries. A fall could be a result of a slippery surface, a foreign material such as water, snow or ice, an uneven surface, a rough surface, an unmarked obstacle, or a variety of other causes.
Such accidents are among the leading cause of premises liability injuries. Property owners, whether private, commercial or governmental, generally owe those entering their property a duty to provide a safe environment, using reasonable and ordinary care to keep the property safe or warn individuals of any dangerous circumstance.
Victims of slip and fall accidents suffer from a wide range of injuries. Common injuries include, but are not limited to: broken wrists, ankles, legs, arms, and hips; back injuries and neck injuries; traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s); paralysis; and even wrongful death.
