Before we get into how these incidents happen, we need to tell you that slip and fall injuries need to be taken seriously. In the aftermath of a fall, many people feel embarrassed and just want to get away from the situation. It is vital that you report the incident to store management and document the scene with photographs if possible. Seek medical attention for any injuries you sustain, no matter how minor they may seem at the time.
Slip and fall incidents happen for a variety of reasons and many of them have to do with the negligence or carelessness of a property owner or their employees. We see this when:
Injuries from slip and fall incidents can be severe and account for over one million emergency room visits a year. The most common injuries are broken and dislocated bones, but victims can also sustain lacerations, head trauma, and spinal cord injuries. The elderly are at a higher risk for serious injuries, but anyone, regardless of their age, can be affected.
These injuries can lead to major medical expenses for victims. If a victim is facing a long recovery time, this could mean time away from work and a loss of income. This can put victims and their families into undue financial jeopardy.
