Common Places for Slip and Fall Accidents

caution sign on tile floor | Common Places for Slip and Fall AccidentsOver one million emergency room visits occur each year due to a slip and fall accident. In addition, according to the National Floor Safety Institute, slip and falls are also the primary reason employees miss work due to injury. But employees and workers aren’t the only ones who are vulnerable to slip and fall accidents. The elderly are also at an increased risk for sustaining significant injury after a slip and fall accident. These accidents can cause excessive medical expenses, rehabilitation fees, and lost wages due to time off of work. In the elderly, a slip and fall accident can even result in death.

A slip and fall accident can occur at any time and any place. It can occur on public property or in a department store and it can even occur in a friend’s home. However, there are common places for slip and fall accidents that pose a greater threat, including:

    • Grocery stores
    • Department stores
    • Restaurants
    • Stairwells
    • Shopping malls
    • Public resorts
    • Theme parks
    • Parking lots
    • Workplace

As with any accident, the first thing you should do is to seek medical attention immediately after a slip and fall accident. If you are injured in the workplace, report your injury to your supervisor immediately. If you are injured in a store, it is imperative that you report your accident and your injury to the manager of the store or the store owner. Failure to report your accident could result in an inability to file a claim and collect the compensation you need.

Once you’ve reported your accident and you’ve sought medical treatment, it is important to contact an experienced attorney immediately. Slip and fall accidents are difficult to prove and your attorney will need to gather evidence quickly to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve. While your attorney is gathering evidence and building your case, you can help your claim by regularly attending all medical appointments and by following your doctor’s order precisely. Failure to follow your doctor’s prescribed treatment plan could adversely affect your case.

Roy Miller

I don’t know where I would be without the Law Offices of Robert Paysinger. It was a very emotional experience, and I feel as if I owe Mr. Paysinger my life! The other lawyers would promise everything, but it was only here that I felt his integrity and willingness to live up to his word. He and the paralegals were so incredibly helpful throughout the strenuous process of my case. Going through a lawsuit is an emotional roller coaster, but whenever I was confused they would sit and explain everything in terms that I could understand. They provided an emotional support and treated me like family. It’s never about the money there, but about you, if you are upset they will do everything to help you, and work extremely hard for you. They are extremely honest and straight forward. I would recommend Mr. Paysinger to everyone, because they truly and genuinely care about you.

Thanks, Robert, for all the help with my accidents (both of them). You always promptly returned my calls and were extremely helpful whenever I had questions. After my motorcycle accident, you helped me understand how to better protect myself in the future, and because of that when I got in my car accident a year later, you were the only person I considered calling.
