According to the U.S. National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, approximately 8,000,000 people fall every year suffering serious injuries, many of which are fatal.  Although we are all susceptible to slip or trip and fall accidents, those most at risk of sustaining severe injuries from slip and fall accidents are children, the elderly and disabled. 

Property owners can be held liable for injuries suffered on their premises, whether indoors or outdoors, due to their negligence. 

Unsafe and poorly maintained properties are more likely to create accidents.  Highly visited and highly trafficked properties are also likely to create slip or trip and fall conditions.   

Common causes of slip or trip and fall accidents and injuries can include:

  • Broken or Uneven Steps
  • Object on Floor
  • Obstructed Hallway
  • Obstructed Pathway
  • Obstructed Stairway
  • Poor Lighting
  • Potholes
  • Slippery Flooring
  • Tangled Carpeting
  • Uneven Flooring
  • Wet Flooring

Common locations where slip or trip and fall accidents or injuries can occur include:

  • Apartment Buildings
  • Banks
  • Condominium Buildings
  • Hospitals
  • Malls
  • Office Buildings
  • Homes
  • Restaurants
  • Retail Stores
  • Shopping Centers
