Take These Incidents Seriously

Falls are one of the most common ways that people are injured on other people’s property and they need to be taken seriously. Property owners and their employees should always have procedures in place to prevent trip and fall incidents, but we know that their carelessness and negligence can cause injuries to patrons.

We often see the following injuries as a result of trip and fall incidents:

  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations (caused by trying to stop a fall)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Concussions

The medical expenses due to these injuries, even minor ones, can leave a person in serious financial trouble. Any time away spent away from work due to hospitalization or recovery may mean losing the income an injury victim needs to support themselves and their families.

Many people do not report trip and fall injuries because they think they are minor. Please understand that you need to report all incidents and seek medical attention for any injury. In many cases, the full extent of a trip and fall injury is not discovered until well after it happens. Any gap in treatment from the time a trip and fall incident happens to the time you see a doctor can be used against you by insurance companies.

How do these incidents happen?

Some of the most common causes of trip and fall incidents include:

  • Cluttered walkways (boxes, tools, brooms, etc. that are left out)
  • Wrinkled carpet
  • Uncovered cables
  • Low-lying shelving left open
  • Uneven walking surfaces (steps, thresholds)

Each of these causes is preventable. Property owners, company management, and employees can all take preventive steps to keep patrons from being injured.
