Slip and Fall

It’s easy to dismiss a slip and fall injury as an accident or a non-issue, but a quick look at the statistics reveals that they’re more common—and serious—than you’d think. The U.S. Center for Disease Control estimates that slip and fall accidents account for one-third of all traumatic brain injuries and a quarter of all spinal cord injuries.

About Slip and Fall Injuries

People slip, trip or fall due to common hazards, such as wet or uneven floors. Business owners have a responsibility by law to keep their premises reasonably safe for customers. Ignoring certain safety hazards over a period of time is an accident waiting to happen.

Common Hazards

  • Wet floors
  • Misplaced items
  • Uneven or poorly maintained floors
  • Extension cords, hoses or other tripping hazards
  • Open and unmarked holes
  • Poorly maintained staircases or railings
  • Icy or snowy parking lots
