What Causes These Incidents?

When you go onto someone else’s property, you expect that the employees or the property owners will maintain a safe environment. However, there are times when they neglect their duties, and this can cause major incidents.

We commonly see trip and fall incidents happen because of:

  • Cluttered walkways
  • Wrinkled or bulged carpets
  • Uncovered cables
  • Low-lying shelving left open
  • Uneven walking surfaces (steps, thresholds, parking lots)

Trip and fall incidents are also much more likely to happen in areas with poor lighting and obstructed views.

How Bad Can The Injuries Be?

Trip and fall incidents can lead to major injuries. Because they happen so unexpectedly, a person can sustain a range of injuries due to them trying to catch themselves to stop the fall. It is not uncommon for us to see the following in the aftermath of a trip and fall:

  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations and scrapes
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Concussions
  • Spinal cord injuries

Each of these injuries can lead to major medical expenses for a victim. Aside from medical costs, a person may have to miss work while they recover, causing a loss of income. Older adults are more likely to suffer severe injuries as a result of trip and fall incidents, but anyone of any age can be harmed.

What To Do?

If you are injured in a fall incident, try to remember the following:

  • Seek medical care for any injury you sustain, no matter how minor it may seem at the time.
  • Document the scene with your phone’s camera if possible.
  • Report the incident to store employees or management.
  • Seek legal assistance.
