Receive Compensation for Your Slip and Fall Accident

by Eric S. Nash on Jun. 13, 2017

Accident & Injury Slip & Fall Accident 

Summary: Receive Compensation for Your Slip and Fall Accident

According to the National Safety Council, you have a 1-in-127 chance of dying from a fall. Grim, right?

Prepare for more unfortunate statistics:

  • Over 700,000 people are hospitalized each year because they have fallen.
  • Falls are the sixth leading cause of death
  • Falls accounted for 32,000 deaths in 2014
  • These accidents cause over eight million emergency room visits each year

Slip, trip and fall accidents can take place in a variety of different places such as a workplace, house, supermarket, hotel, restaurant, stadium and movie theater. The list can go on, but the common thread is that you can get injured due to the negligence of a landlord, property owner or property manager.

What are some common causes of slip, trip and fall accidents? Here are just a few:

  • Potholes
  • Broken concrete
  • Untreated ice and snow
  • Unlevel concrete
  • Slippery floors
  • Dangerous sidewalks
  • Tripping hazards
  • Low ceilings
  • Broken steps
  • Oily surfaces
