Falling down may be a pretty normal part of life when you’re young, but it becomes more and more painful as you get older. As adults, slipping or tripping and falling can cause serious injuries, and even life-changing ones. Over one million people in the U.S. suffer a slip and fall injury annually and many of these are life changing and even fatal. For instance, work-related falls are the leading cause of death in the construction industry, and falls are the number one cause of deaths caused by injury in people 73 or older.

Slip, trip, and fall accident injuries are often caused by:

- Icy or snowy surfaces
- Cluttered hallways
- Cables running across walkways
How Slip & Fall Cases Work
As with many other types of personal injury law, a slip and fall case involves proving liability, or determining who is at fault for the accident that caused your injuries. If someone else’s negligence—or willful lack of care or disregard for the safety of others—causes you to become injured, then they are considered “liable” and can be sued for monetary compensation for things like medical expenses, lost wages, and physical and emotional suffering.
In a slip and fall case, the burden is on you, the victim, to prove liability. You must be able to show that the property owner knew—or at least should have known—about a hazardous condition and failed to take action. For example, a broken security system and serious leaks are conditions that the property owner should have known about and taken steps to remedy.
Slip and fall accidents are also one of the types of cases that fall under the guise of “premises liability” law. This doctrine essentially dictates that property owners have a duty and responsibility to maintain a safe property that’s free from obviously dangerous features that could cause an injury. For example, open trenches that someone could fall in, slippery walkways that are covered with standing water, and dim lighting that make it impossible to see clearly are all conditions that could make a property owner liable if they are left unrepaired.
After a slip and fall accident, you may have incurred serious injuries are expensive to treat—especially if such injuries require ongoing care like physical therapy. You will likely need to take time off work for recovery, potentially causing you to lose some income—in severe cases, you may have to quit your job entirely due to long-term pain and suffering.
If a property owner or manager is found at fault in your accident, they must compensate you for related medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other relevant damages in proportion to your injuries and recovery. We will help you fight to prove liability and get the maximum compensation you deserve!
