Where Do Slip & Fall Accidents Happen?
Slip and fall accidents can happen almost anywhere, in both residential and commercial properties. A slip and fall accident happens most often when a property owner is not fixing or alerting guests to slippery or slick surfaces on the premises. This type of accident occurs more often on hard surfaces, like tile, concrete, asphalt, vinyl, or linoleum as opposed to carpeted surfaces, but this also means that the injuries caused by falling to the ground have a higher likelihood of being serious. Some of the most common areas where slip and fall accidents take place are at restaurants, bars, grocery stores, near swimming pools, on boardwalks, movie theaters, and anywhere else where a liquid can be spilled and create a hazard.
Slip & Fall Injuries
The injuries caused by a slip and fall accident can range from the mild to the severe. The specific details of the case, such as personal details about the injured victim, how far the victim fell, and what surface they fell on, often determine the extent of the injuries. Some of the most commonly reported injuries from slip and fall cases in Florida include the following:
- Traumatic brain injuries,
- Skull fracture,
- Facial trauma,
- Neck injuries,
- Spine and back injuries,
- Soft tissue injuries,
- Bone fractures,
- Serious lacerations and contusions, and more.
Serious injuries like the fracture of a hip can result in surgery and extensive medical treatment for slip and fall victims. It is critical that those responsible for the accident fully compensate a slip and fall victim for all the costs associated with their injuries.
