Slip and fall accidents make up 15% of accidental deaths in America, second only to car crashes. Each year, about 8 million people go to the emergency room because of slip and falls. 25% of all work-related accidents are slip and falls. Falls commonly cause brain damage, bone fractures, and lost work hours.
One in three elderly people will experience a fall each year, and one half of these falls will lead to permanent care away from home. Falls are the main cause of medically treated non-fatal injuries in the US.
When it comes to slip and falls, negligence is the main question. Were you at fault? Whose property was it? Was there a dangerous condition? Did or should the property owner know of this condition? Was it avoidable? Was there a visible notice or warning? Could you have avoided the injury?
