What Does a Slip and Fall Actually Mean?

Slip and falls are a common type of injury that people experience every day. While that might make you think of liquid or ice on the floor, a slip and fall can actually mean a number of different things. In certain situations, you could experience severe financial losses and physical suffering. At Jan Dils, Attorneys at Law, we have experienced slip and fall attorneys who help set things right.

What Causes Slip and Fall Accidents?

All property owners have an obligation to properly maintain their property and premises. If an active hazard causes someone to fall, the property owner is responsible and should be held accountable. Many types of hazardous conditions can result in a slip and fall, including:

  • Wet floors
  • Uneven flooring
  • Loose flooring material
  • Bulging carpeting
  • Unsalted icy areas
  • Potholes
  • Spills that are not cleaned up
  • Debris or trash on the floor
  • Poor lighting

Our Personal Injury attorneys can help you in any of these situations.

Impacts of a Slip and Fall Accident

Statistics from the National Flooring Safety Institute reveal that eight million people visit hospital emergency rooms each year after a fall. Slips and falls make up 12% of total falls and independently account for a million ER visits.

The consequences of a slip and fall can be far more than a sprained ankle. Slip and falls can cause broken bones, spine damage, or concussions, which can lead to significant medical bills and lost wages. The emotional burdens of these injuries can cause an increase in anxiety and a decrease in self-confidence. As attorneys with broad experience in slip and fall cases, we can empathize with your overwhelming emotional and physical challenges – and that is why we want to help.
