Helping victims injured in trip and fall accidents recover

According to the National Safety Council (NSC), nearly 9 million individuals in the United States seek medical treatment in emergency rooms for injuries sustained in slips, trips, and falls every year. A large number of these trip and fall accidents occur on property owned and/or managed by a business or another individual because a dangerous condition existed on the premises. In such situations, injured victims may have the right to substantial compensation from a property owner by filing a premises liability claim.

Trip and fall accidents can result in serious injuries

While many people who trip and fall simply suffer a bruised ego, others can sustain serious injuries that can require costly medical treatment. Some examples of injuries possible in trip and falls include:

  • Broken bones
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Contusions
  • Lacerations
  • Dislocations

Some of the above injuries can have long-lasting effects on a victim's life and can keep them from working or performing everyday tasks. Older adults are at a particular risk for serious trip and fall injuries, including a broken hip or pelvis, and often cannot resume living independently after such injuries.

Holding negligent property owners liable

  • Leaving debris or objects in walkways
  • Having inadequate lighting
  • Failing to secure electrical cords to the walls
  • Having loose or torn carpet
  • Failing to properly warn of step-downs
  • Not having adequate handrails

These are only some examples of the types of negligence at issue in trip and fall cases.
