Our Independence slip and fall accident attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation into your case so you can rest peacefully knowing you are in good hands.

What is a slip and fall accident?

Perhaps slip and fall accidents would be better classified as slip and fall “incidents,” because the word accident implies that nobody is at fault. The reality is that there are many times when someone is at fault for a slip and fall incident. In many cases, a property owner or their employees are to blame for a slip and fall incident.

Property owners have a duty to ensure there are no hazards present on their premises that could cause guests harm. If there are hazards that cannot be remedied immediately, property owners have a duty to alert anyone on their premises to the potential danger.

Some of the most common ways that slip and fall incidents occur include the following:

  • Wet floors from spills or leaks
  • No wet floor sign present after mopping
  • Loose carpeting or floorboards
  • Low-lying obstacles in a guest’s path (boxes, merchandise, etc.)
  • Uneven walking surfaces (including parking lots)

The National Floor Safety Institute says that nearly one million people seek treatment in hospitals or doctor’s offices each year due to slip and fall incidents. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), older Americans are most as-risk of serious slip and fall injuries.

What injuries can occur due to slip and fall incidents?

These incidents can lead to a variety of injuries. It is not uncommon for our slip and fall accident attorney to help clients who have sustained the following:

  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations
  • Bone bruises
  • Concussions
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Head injuries

Each of these injuries can result in a victim needing extensive medical care, time away from work, as well as pain and suffering.
