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 conditions.
Such accidents are among the leading cause of premises liability injuries. Property owners, whether private, commercial or governmental, generally have a duty to provide a safe environment to those entering their property, 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.
