Common Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents

People can trip, slip, and fall anywhere, and you may suffer injuries after slipping and falling because of negligent conditions at a friend’s house, a grocery store or local business, or a sidewalk. Common causes of slip and fall accidents include:

  • Uneven pavement
  • Defective stairs
  • Inclement weather (i.e. snow, rain, sleet)
  • Unkempt cords or electrical wires
  • Improper footwear
  • Broken handrails
  • Poor lighting
  • Spilled food or drinks

Common Injuries Sustained in Slip & Fall Accidents

After slipping and falling, accident victims may suffer a variety of injuries (that range in severity). Common injuries sustained in slip (or trip) and fall accidents include:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries (such as whiplash)
  • Knee or ankle sprains
  • Facial injuries (such as broken teeth, jaw or nose fractures, and eye injuries)
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Concussions or other traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Broken bones

What to Do After a Slip & Fall Accident

If you are able, you should take the following steps after suffering injuries in a slip and fall accident.

  • Tell a staff member or property owner about your accident. After you slip or trip and fall, you should report the accident; in some cases, businesses have accident report forms, and you should take action to make sure there is a record of the incident. However, it is important to note that you are not required to complete the form.
  • Take pictures. You should take pictures of the scene of the accident, especially if the accident was caused by water, ice, or other weather-related factors. You should also take pictures of your injuries before and after treatment as well as the report form (if you complete one). These photos can later serve as evidence.
  • Write down the contact information of those involved. If there are witnesses to the accident, you should collect their names, number, and email address. You should also collect the information of the property owner and the person to whom you reported the incident.
  • Seek medical treatment. No matter how minor your injuries are you should see a doctor. If you do not obtain treatment, the severity or validity of your injuries may be brought into question by opposing counsel. More importantly, it is dangerous to your health to not obtain treatment as certain injuries may take time to appear or may not initially present as severe.
  • Contact our Denton slip and fall attorneys. In Texas, slip and fall claims must be filed within two years of the incident, and the sooner you contact our attorneys, the sooner we can get to work on your case. Working with accident reconstructionists and other professional consultants, we can work tirelessly to strengthen your case and establish the other party’s liability.
