Understanding Slip-and-Fall Accidents

Slip-and-fall accidents can occur anywhere - in a shopping mall, on a sidewalk, at work, or even at a friend's house.

These incidents often involve conditions such as uneven pavement, wet floors, poor lighting, or icy walkways.

Not every slip-and-fall incident leads to legal liability. Compensation is warranted when negligence is involved. In legal terms, negligence means someone failed to take appropriate action, leading to dangerous conditions.

Why Are Businesses Often Involved in Slip-and-Fall Cases?

Businesses are more than just buildings with products to sell. They are important spaces for people to exchange goods and services, and some of these transactions are necessary for daily life.

In our society, money is essential for our survival, and a business exists solely to take people’s money. Essentially, you trade away a piece of your livelihood whenever you spend money in a commercial location.

As a result, businesses are legally responsible for ensuring customer safety. This is true whether the customer is just browsing or passing through. Businesses must implement safety protocols and provide a secure environment. This liability extends to all parts of the business’s property, even the parking lot.

A business must protect its customers from falling, or they could suffer legal consequences. That means keeping aisles clear, cleaning spills in a timely manner, and posting warning signage. When a business puts up a “Caution Wet Floor” sign, they are protecting themselves, not you.

Private citizens can also be liable for a slip-and-fall on their residential property. Such liability is usually the result of failing to warn visitors or trespassers of dangers on the property.

Injuries You Could Sustain in a Slip-and-Fall Case

In a slip-and-fall case, injuries can range from minor bruises to life-altering fractures.

Sprains and strains to muscles and ligaments are common, as are cuts and scrapes.

However, skull and brain injuries are also a possibility, especially if the person hits their head during the fall. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can have lasting effects and require extensive treatment.

Additionally, slip-and-fall can cause broken bones and back injuries, leading to chronic pain and limited mobility.

Seek medical attention after a slip-and-fall accident, even if you believe your injuries are minor. Immediate treatment can prevent complications, and it helps with any legal action you pursue.

Compensation You Could Receive in a Slip-and-Fall Claim

Compensation varies depending on the severity of your injuries and the impact those injuries have on your daily life.

In a claim, you could be repaid for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
