Slip and fall accidents, as trivial as they may seem, are actually among the most common causes of injury in the United States, and they even result in a surprisingly substantial number of deaths each year. In many cases, those who suffer the most serious injuries as a result of slip and falls are the elderly, whose bodies may be less able to absorb the impact of a hard fall. However, even younger individuals are at risk of suffering serious physical damage in a slip and fall accident.

There are many different ways that slip and fall accidents can cause injuries. Most of these injuries are relatively minor, while some are more worrisome. Some of the most common injury risks associated with slip and fall accidents include the following:

  • Ÿ  Broken bones
  • Ÿ  Contusions
  • Ÿ  Scars
  • Ÿ  Traumatic brain injury
  • Ÿ  Hip displacement
  • Ÿ  Spinal cord injury

These and other potential injury risks resulting from slip and fall accidents can have serious consequences for injured patients. In particular, they may require costly medical treatment which the injured individual cannot afford, as well as potentially costing them time away from work. In light of these risks, therefore, it is important to be alert to avoid slip and fall accidents.
