      Depending upon the impact of your fall, a slip and fall accident can cause minor to severe injuries. These injuries can lead to a decrease in work productivity or a loss of income altogether. Understanding common slip and fall injuries will allow you to better communicate with your doctor, so you have the best chance at recovery. However, some injuries are more apparent than others. Therefore, it’s crucial you seek medical attention immediately after an accident.

      Common types of slip and fall-related injuries include:

      Leading Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

      A slip and fall accident can happen anywhere: in the grocery store aisle, at work, at a local park, in front of your neighbor’s house, and even on a public street. Each year, slip and fall accidents send more than one million people to the emergency room, most of which are preventable. The primary causes of slip and fall accidents are uneven surfaces, inadequate lighting, damaged handrails, wet floors, and an obstructed walkway such as wires or chords in traffic areas. Property owners and employers alike have a responsibility to ensure their premises are safe, and when they fail to meet that obligation, they should be held liable.

      Steps to Take After Your Slip and Fall Accident

      • Seek medical treatment—The health of you or your loved one should be your primary concern, so you should see a doctor shortly after the accident. This will not only allow your injuries to be properly documented and used as evidence to build your case but also identify any pressing issues that may affect your health in the future.
      • Report your accident—Prior to leaving the scene of an accident, be sure to inform the owner or property manager of your slip and fall accident and request details of the incident in writing.
      • Take photos of the location—If possible, snap photos of the conditions surrounding your injury. This information will later be used as evidence to validate your slip and fall injury claim.
      • Refuse to give statements—Limit your communications with the property owner or manager and avoid giving a statement to the insurance company until you’ve consulted an attorney. Insurance companies can use this information to deny your claim.
      • Contact an Attorney—When you’ve been involved in a slip and fall accident, the best person to contact is an attorney. These types of claims can be challenging to prove and require legal expertise. A slip and fall accident attorney at OPO will guide you through the legal process and handle all the aspects of your accident claim.
