Slip and fall accidents often occur due to poor maintenance of buildings, stairways, and sidewalks. Wet or icy surfaces with no hazard signs, icy sidewalks, improperly maintained floors, broken paving stones and worn carpets are some of the most common causes of slip and fall injuries. Property owners and municipalities have a duty to ensure their premises are kept as reasonably safe as possible. When they fail in their duty, they should be held responsible for any injuries that result due to their negligence. Injuries that may be sustained from slip and fall accidents include:
Most slip and fall accident injuries get better with time, but sometimes minor injuries can become more serious such as when a blood clot develops from a concussion or when a broken ankle fails to heal. When this happens, the medical expenses coupled with loss of income can become a burden on the injured person. It is therefore important to seek medical assistance soon after a slip and fall accident for a thorough examination.
