Have you ever walked into a store or on someone else’s’ property and noticed that there were obstacles everywhere? Maybe some fallen clothes or boxes?

We know that you probably never thought you would need a Columbus tip and fall injury lawyer, but there are times when the negligence of a property owner or their employees can cause major injuries. At Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers, we are ready to be your advocate. Let us get to work today so we can secure the compensation you need for all of your injury-related expenses.

What Causes Trip And Fall Incidents?

We need to point out that slip and trips are the number one cause of premises liability cases. These incidents happen all the time – more than we actually realize. Many trips and fall victims choose to leave a location quickly after an incident because they are embarrassed. Please do not do this. It is vital that you report a trip and fall incident and seek medical assistance immediately after it happens.

What can cause trip and fall incidents?

These incidents often occur because a property owner or their employees fail to properly check the premises for hazards. This can include:

  • Recently mopped floors without a wet floor sign
  • Loose floorboards, mats, or rugs
  • Loose pavement or potholes in parking lots
  • Spills or leaks that are not cleaned up
  • Floors that have oil or grease that has not been properly removed
  • Trash or debris on the floor
  • Low-lying obstacles like boxes
  • Cords or cables that are not covered or secured
  • Open desk or cabinet drawers
  • Transitions from one type of floor surface to another with no warning
  • And more

What injuries can occur in these incidents?

Some of the most common injuries we see as a result of trip and fall incidents are:

  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Head injuries and concussions
  • Severe lacerations and contusions
  • Bone cruises
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Whiplash injuries

Each of these injuries can lead to major medical expenses and ongoing medical problems for a victim. If a person has to miss work while they recover, or if they are disabled because of a fall, they could lose the income they need to support themselves and their families.
