Slip & Fall
Slip-and-fall injuries are premises liability claims that result when someone slips, trips or falls as a consequence of an unsafe or hazardous condition. Slip and falls are, by some accounts, the second leading cause of injuries in our country, accounting for an incredible 16,000 deaths every year. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, slip-and-fall injuries constitute 15 percent of all accidental workplace deaths each year. Nursing home falls cause a stunning number of deaths each year.
Some slip-and-fall tort claims arise simply because the injured person was not paying attention. But we have seen many slip-and-fall claims that result from dangerous conditions that the victim could not have possibly foreseen. Often the problem is poor design or improper maintenance of the premises. Other slip-and-fall accidents result from slippery surfaces that result from the spillage of food or liquids.
