Slip and fall accidents lead to approximately one million emergency room stays each year. These kinds of accidents are also the primary reason for workers’ compensation claims being filed, as well as the leading cause of job-related injuries for people who are between 15 and 24 years of age. Slip and fall accidents will inflict fairly critical injuries that often result in substantial medical bills, with the overall costs of employee slip and falls rounding out at close to $70 million every single year.
Bruises, cuts, spinal cord injury, broken bones, traumatic brain injury, and accidental death are only a few of the multitude of possible outcomes from a slip and fall accident. The harm that it does to the body can require expensive medical procedures, render you unable to work, and downgrade your life.
In order to successfully resolve a slip and fall claim, the victim must be able to prove that the accident took place at the location in question, that the property owner or employers were negligent or careless in ensuring a safe environment, and that the victim became injured as a result of that negligence.
