    What Makes Slip and fall Accidents So Dangerous?

    Falling accidents pose significant dangers to individuals. The impact of a fall can lead to various injuries, including broken bones, head trauma, spinal cord damage, and soft tissue injuries. These injuries can result in pain, suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and a diminished quality of life. Additionally, slip and fall accidents can cause emotional distress, stress, and anxiety, further impacting the well-being of the injured individual.


    What Are the Common Causes of Falling Accidents? 

    Slip and fall accidents can occur due to various factors, such as, Occupational Health and Safety violations in the workplace, poor maintenance, lack of signage, poor lighting, and other dangers including:

    Hazardous conditions

    Wet or slippery floors, uneven surfaces, loose rugs or mats, and inadequate lighting can contribute to slip and fall accidents.

    Poor maintenance

    Neglected maintenance, such as broken stairs, cracked sidewalks, or damaged handrails, can create dangerous conditions that increase the risk of falls.

    Spills and debris.

    Spilled liquids, food, or other substances left unattended or not promptly cleaned can create hazardous conditions, making individuals more prone to slipping and falling.

    Inadequate warning signs

    Failure to place safety signs or take cautionary measures in areas where there are potential dangers, such as recently waxed floors or construction zones, can lead to slip-and-fall accidents.


    Common Injuries in Fall Accidents

    Slip and fall accidents can result in various injuries, including:

    • Fractures and broken bones
    • Head injuries
    • Traumatic brain injuries
    • Spinal cord injuries
    • Neck injuries
    • Back injuries

    Falls in older adults can be especially devastating, resulting in slow-healing injuries, strokes, multiple fractures, and other serious harm.


    Why It’s Important to Act Quickly After a Fall on Someone’s Property

    Acting swiftly to gather evidence is crucial after a slip-and-fall accident.
    The key reasons for this include:

    Preserving the Scene

    The property owner or manager may clean up or repair the hazardous condition that caused your fall, removing essential evidence. Taking photographs or videos of the accident scene, including the hazardous condition, can help establish liability.

    Witness statements

    Collecting statements from witnesses who observed the accident and their contact information is vital. Memories fade over time, so gathering witness statements promptly ensures accurate and reliable accounts of the incident.

    Medical Documentation

    Seeking immediate medical attention after a slip and fall accident is essential for both your well-being and the strength of your case. Medical records, diagnoses, and treatment plans provide valuable evidence of the extent and nature of your injuries.

    Incident reports

    Reporting the accident to the property owner or manager and requesting an incident report creates an official record of the incident, documenting the details and your injuries.


    Tactics of Negligent Property Owners

    Negligent property owners may employ various tactics to undermine your slip and fall claim and avoid liability.

    Some of these tactics include:

    Cleaning up or repairing the hazard

    A negligent property owner may quickly clean up or repair the hazardous condition that caused your slip and fall accident. By doing so, they attempt to eliminate the evidence and make it challenging to prove that their negligence led to your injuries. Acting swiftly to gather evidence can help preserve the condition as it was at the time of the accident.

    Hiding or destroying evidence

    In some cases, a negligent property owner may intentionally hide or destroy evidence related to the slip and fall accident. This can include surveillance footage, maintenance records, incident reports, or other crucial documentation that could support your claim. Acting promptly and gathering evidence before it is tampered with or destroyed is essential.

    Denying liability

    Property owners or their insurance companies may try to shift blame or deny liability altogether. They may argue that you were careless or that the hazardous condition was obvious and should have been avoided. An experienced slip-and-fall lawyer can help gather evidence and build a strong case to establish the property owner's negligence.

    Offering inadequate settlements

    Insurance companies representing negligent property owners may attempt to settle your claim quickly and for a minimal amount. They may pressure you into accepting an inadequate settlement before you fully understand the extent of your injuries and the long-term consequences. Having a slip-and-fall lawyer on your side ensures that you receive fair compensation for all accident-related damages.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
