Slip And Fall

Slipandfall

In many cases, slip-and-fall incidents occur because of the negligence of another, and victims must act quickly, especially if the hazard is temporary. In the case of a contaminant spill or an obstructed walkway, liability by the responsible parties might be avoided if the evidence is quickly cleaned up or the obstruction is cleared before the victim reports their fall.

For many victims, the costs associated with these types of injuries — including (but not limited to) medical expenses, outpatient treatment, lost wages and other expenses that are related to your injury can be crushing. However, all is not lost.

If you or a loved one has suffered a slip, trip or fall on someone else’s property, you may be entitled to compensation and at the law offices of Simien & Simien, LLC, we can help to fight for the justice that you deserve.

To find out how we can help, simply fill out the “Free Case Evaluation” form located to the right — it’s 100 percent FREE to send.

At Simien & Simien, LLC, we offer free consultations, and we only get paid if we win.

Causes Of Slip-And-Fall Incidents

General industry accidents are comprised mostly of slips, trips and falls. Such a common accident can be caused by any number of factors and, if premises are not properly maintained, are likely to occur.

The following are the most common causes of slip, trip or fall incidents:

  • Improper or poorly maintained flooring
  • Contamination
  • Obstacles
  • Cleaning
  • Human error
  • Environmental factors
  • Failure to provide handrails
  • Wet surfaces
  • Bad lighting
  • Incorrect sign
  • Incorrect signage

These factors and countless others frequently contribute to a situation that may cause a slip or fall resulting in injury. Flooring must be suitable for the workplace and free of trip hazards, spills and obstacles, but it is the duty of the persons who maintain the property to ensure that these scenarios do not occur.

Common Locations Of Slip, Trip Or Fall Injuries

While almost any area can be the potential location for this type of incident, independent studies have shown that certain places are more prone to slip-and-fall conditions. Some of the most common places that slips, trips or falls may occur include:

  • Grocery stores
  • Shopping centers
  • Gymnasiums
  • Swimming pools
  • Construction areas
  • Parking lots and public parking garages
  • Office buildings
  • Restaurants
  • Bars and nightclubs
  • Homes of family, friends and neighbors, etc.

It’s important to note that due to the high rate of illegitimate injury claims made for these types of accidents, it can be very difficult to obtain a successful verdict or settlement. In fact, in many areas, the local laws are written to help protect landowners.

However, at the law offices of Simien & Simien, LLC, our team of skilled attorneys has detailed knowledge of premise liability laws in our state and can help to construct a robust argument for your damages claim.

Typical Injuries Caused By Slip-And-Fall Incidents

Victims of slips, trips or falls may sustain a wide range of injuries that can seriously impact their daily lives and prevent them from performing any number of personal or professional duties.

The most common injuries resulting from a slip, trip or fall often include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Herniated discs
  • Broken bones
  • Concussion
  • Lacerations
  • Bruising
  • Whiplash
  • Internal injuries

Just to name a few.

If a slip, trip or fall is not fatal, the injuries a victim sustains could lead to paralysis or brain damage, in the case of a closed head injury. This long-term trauma is not always immediately recognized, which is why it is so important to act quickly in the event of a slip, trip or fall. It is vital to seek medical attention immediately following a slip, trip or fall.
