  • The workplace
  • At the business of another
  • At a sporting event
  • At a concert or musical event
  • In a crowded public place
  • At home
  • At the home of another
  • In icy conditions

Each of these situations would be handled differently from a legal standpoint. This is why it’s important to involve an attorney who can correctly file your claim and get you the compensation you deserve.

Determining Liability

Occasionally, slip and fall injuries are sustained because the injured person was not paying attention. However, these types of accidents tend to be caused by another person’s negligence or because of unsafe conditions on another’s property that could have been otherwise prevented.

The law states that a property owner or landlord is only responsible for keeping his or her property reasonably safe. However, if the owner failed to react to a hazard in a timely manner, he or she may assume liability for any injuries that result from it. To determine if a property owner or landlord is at fault, the following evidence must be collected:

  • Photographs or video of the dangerous property condition
  • Documentation of injuries attributed to the fall
  • Proof that the property owner had notice of the hazard
  • Incident reports
  • Eyewitness testimony

Common Slip and Fall Injuries

Although many people fall and jump right back up, slip and falls can cause serious injuries. Between the time a person slips and the time he or she hits the ground, there is very little time to consider how to react. Even the slightest twist in the wrong direction can mean the difference between a bruise and a broken arm. Serious injuries that may result from slips and falls include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Broken Bones
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Neck and Back Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries


The monetary loss associated with slip and fall accidents can be significant. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the National Safety Council, a slip and fall injury will cost the person who’s injured an average of almost $30,000. An experienced attorney can fight for maximum compensation to cover:

• Medical bills – both for treatments received and for future medical needs

• Lost wages and lost future earnings

• Pain and suffering

• Emotional tole created by being injured

• Having to deal with any permeant impairments or disabilities
