Slip-and-fall accidents may sound like minor incidents, but the Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that over a million Americans are injured in slip-and-fall accidents every year, and over 17,000 people die from slip-and-fall injuries. These premises liability accidents often cause severe personal injuries, including:
- Broken bones
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Paralysis or incapacitation
- Long-term medical complications
In many cases, slip-and-fall accidents are caused by uneven flooring, poor lighting, or unmarked wet spots on a property. Most of these hazards can be traced back to negligence on the part of the property owner. In order to recover damages in a slip-and-fall case, you need to prove that your injuries were caused by an unreasonable risk that the property manager failed to address.
