Common Causes of Slip and Falls
While many attribute their slip and fall to personal clumsiness, these types of accidents are more likely a result of insufficient upkeep of the property. Common maintenance issues that cause slip and fall accidents include:
- Loose flooring or carpet
- Malfunctioning escalators
- Poor lighting
- Tripping hazards
- Unmarked wet floors
Slip and falls can happen due to a variety of factors in a neglected space and are not limited to those listed above. However it happened, our medical team can evaluate the injuries you suffered and work towards a plan for your recovery.
Common Injuries from Slip and Falls
A slip and fall results in serious injury in 20% of cases according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Among the most common injuries people face are:
- Broken bones
- Herniated discs
- Muscle sprains
- Muscle strains
While some injuries, like a broken bone, are more obvious to the victim, others may be brushed off by the victim as standard soreness. Some may not even realize have sustained a serious injury. Back injuries are among the conditions that go unacknowledged for the longest, even though the individual will suffer from it immediately upon impact. They could be experiencing:
- Localized pain
- Muscle spasms
- Numbness, tingling, or weakness
- Pain that worsens with specific movements
