Slip and fall injuries are extremely common, with the CDC estimating that approximately 2.3 million people visited emergency rooms in the U.S. in 2010 as a result of injuries from non-fatal falls. Slip and fall accidents occur when a person slips, trips falls or is somehow injured on another person’s property. A victim of a slip and fall accident may have the right to compensation for their injury, if the injury is a result of the property owner's failure to take proper care of their property or remove dangerous conditions.

Many slip and fall accidents can be prevented with proper maintenance and by exercising reasonable care in making a property safe for visitors. If there are hazards that cannot be fixed or corrected, the property owner or renter needs to adequately warn visitors in order to avoid injury.

Common reasons for slip and fall accidents include:
  • Changes in flooring surface (from tile to carpet for example)
  • Slippery or slick floors
  • Uneven pavement or gravel
  • Cracks in sidewalks or flooring
  • Stairs that are too steep, that have broken handrails or that have narrow treads
  • Objects in walkways
  • Curbs and Potholes
  • Unexpected rises or falls (for example, an unmarked step down)
