Slip & fall accidents are common and can happen virtually anywhere. While some slip and fall injuries are minor, there are others that cause serious, grievous injuries and possibly even death.
Slip & fall accidents can happen in:
- Gas stations
- On sidewalks
- In parking lots
- Inside and outside medical facilities
- Grocery stores
- Department stores
Injuries caused by slip & fall accidents can include:
- Broken bones
- Bruises, cuts and lacerations
- Head injuries
- Brain injuries
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
Often, slip & fall accidents are the result of the carelessness and negligence of another person or a business. Businesses and property owners have a responsibility to keep the area free and clear of potential hazards, but this does not always happen. A spill in a grocery store that has been neglected could cause a serious slip & fall accident, or even broken concrete outside of a store could cause someone to trip.
