Slip and fall injuries can happen at anytime and any place and can be responsible for varying degrees of brain injuries.
Slip and fall incidents, also known as slip, trip and fall accidents, can lead to non-catastrophic but serious injuries ranging from twisted ankles, knees and wrists, to torn ligaments, broken bones, and hip fractures. However, some of these incidents, which can result from conditions such as poor lighting, violations of building codes or regulations, and surface defects, can also cause traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and even death.
When a slip and fall injury occurs, an experienced lawyer will investigate, in part, by arranging for an inspection of the site, documenting conditions with photographs or video, securing evidence, obtaining witness statements, and determining whether there is a history of prior complaints or incidents
A 2013 study by the Center for Disease Control has also shown that at least one in 3 adults experience injury from such a fall.
