Were you or a loved one injured in a slip-and-fall accident?

Falls are a number one cause of injury amongst workers and the elderly. However, you don't have to be working or and elderly person in a nursing home to suffer a slip-and-fall accident injury. Even the most average person can be victim when they enter a premise in which the property is unsafe and it can quickly cause injury.

When you were a kid on the playground, you probably played with you friends and took a spill or two. The difference between then and now is you probably bounced right back up. Now, a fall on a wet concrete floor could have a completely different outcome. Losing control of your body in a fall can cause a person to land on it awkwardly or to land on a body part that isn't meant to be impacted.

A slip-and-fall accident could result in a broken bone, head injury or spine injury to name a few. This happens when the body impacts the ground. Usually the person who slips and falls isn't expecting it. With winter here, there are many slippery sidewalks and parking lots so slip-and-fall accidents are usually more common this time of year.

A property owner is required to maintenance their sidewalk. In winter time, this could mean shoveling and salting the walkway. However, they are also required to have a sidewalk that is even to walk on without holes or other obstructions. Failure to do this could easily cause injury and the property owner can be found negligent.
