Slip and Fall

Slip & Fall

Georgia and Florida Slip and Fall Attorneys

Did you know that property owners have a duty to ensure that their property is reasonably safe for tenants, visitors, shoppers, passers-by and other individuals on the property? This applies to both highly visible and hard-to-see hazards. A broken bottle of olive oil on the grocery store’s floor can result in horrendous injuries. Hidden hazards such as an electrical cord buried in the carpet can result in a trip, slip and fall accident – and broken bones.

Examples of Slip and Fall Hazards

These are just a few of some of the many causes of slip and fall accidents, also known as slip, trip, and fall:

  • Icy, wet, or greasy floor
  • Uneven floor surfaces
  • Concrete floor in disrepair
  • Holes in carpet – easy to trip on
  • An open desk drawer or filing cabinet drawer – easy to run into
  • Insufficient or lack of lighting
  • Defective stairs or floorboards
  • Loose or absent handrails in stairway
  • Bunched-up carpet, floor mats

Slip and Fall Accidents Cause Many Injuries

When you fall, it is natural to try to brace the impact with your open palms. This often results in fractured fingers or wrists. Extremely serious injuries result when you fall and your head strikes the pavement, often resulting in a concussion, broken nose, neck and spinal injuries and more. Injuries may include:

  • Fractures
  • Head and spinal injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Knee and ankle injuries
  • Hand, wrist and elbow injuries
