SLIP & FALL INJURY
What is a Slip and Fall Accident?
Everyone has at least slipped or fallen multiple times in their lives, most of the time caused by clumsiness or not paying attention. Other times, prevention of these accidents can occur. OSHA has workplace standards for these reasons. Sometimes dangers are not always obvious as too why we need to learn more to recognize things that can cause an injury. This is when liability can come into play. A slip and fall accident is a slip that ends in a fall due to a hazardous condition on anther’s property. The leading cause of spinal cord and brain injury is due to slip and falls. Some can be life threatening, mostly for children and seniors.
Slip & Fall Injury
Injuries in the back or spice are the most serious injuries, which can lead to long-term injury or death. Head injuries are significant as well, as they can lead to loss of cognitive function or death. Recovery can be short term or long term. Most slip and fall incidents, the person will recover from muscle strains and sprains. But, recovering from broken bones takes a lot longer.
Slip and fall accidents can occur because of unsafe conditions on another’s property that could have been prevented. These types of accidents can also happen because the person wasn’t paying attention and it lead to an injury. It’s highly relevant to note that property owners or landlords are only responsible for keeping their property fairly safe. The property owner may assume liability for the injury/accident if they failed to properly react to a hazard in a timely manner.
How Do I Prove My Injury?
To prove your injury, the property owner/landlord must be negligent and caused the slip and fall accident. You can get your evidence by: photographs/video of the dangerous property condition, injuries related to the fall, proving that the property owner had notice of the dangers, incident reports, and eyewitness testimony. Hiring an experienced attorney for your incident will be able to investigate the accident.
