Slip and Fall Accidents

The image of cartoon characters slipping on misplaced banana peels is probably as deeply ingrained on the public consciousness as virtually any other animated representation. But for all the humor and laughs had at the expense of the unwitting on-screen imaginings, slip and fall accidents that occur in the real world are far from funny. Improperly maintained floors, the presence of trip hazards in walkways, and liquid spills are only some of the dangers that can upend an individual and subject him or her to the risk of serious physical injury.

Under premises liability laws, the owner of a property is considered to be legally responsible for injuries that befall invited guests, business patrons, and others while they are on the property.

Injuries Associated with Slip and Fall

It seems counterintuitive to imagine that a tumble from your feet could have the potential to inflict tremendous bodily harm, especially given the frequency with which people fall as children without any apparent damage. But as we grow up, we gain more mass and height and in turn the force of impact also increases. With the introduction of environmental factors such as shelving, desks, and other largely immovable objects, the danger becomes greater still. Injuries associated with slip and fall accidents include:

  • Fractured bones
  • Spinal injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Connective tissue damage
  • Muscle tears
