Slip and fall injuries are one of the most common
types of personal injuries in America. There are over 1 million slip and fall injuries that occur every year in the United States and the average cost for these accidents range in the thousands. It very frequently occurs to professionals who are on the job, to children who are being supervised by a childcare service, and to the elderly who live in nursing homes. Regardless of who is injured, a slip and fall injury can send an individual to the hospital with broken bones, head trauma, fractures, and other serious medical conditions. If the individual falls from a tall height or hits their head, the trauma of the fall can be especially severe and may result in death.
Unfortunately, not all property owners will want to admit fault and take responsibility for their negligence. It’s not uncommon for a property owner to try and redirect the blame for the slip and fall victim in order to evade being liable.
