Types of Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents can happen almost anywhere, but they are most likely to occur when maintenance problems exist or when a building is not designed in a safe and effective way. The most common reasons for slip-and-fall accidents include:
- Wet and/or slippery floors
- Overcrowded aisles at stores
- Icy road or sidewalk surfaces, especially when “black ice” is present
- Uneven pavement or surfaces
- Debris or other tripping hazards in a store aisle, hallway, sidewalk, walking path, etc.
- Torn carpets
- Cracks or holes (including potholes) in the floor, pavement or ground
- Broken railings
- Exposed cables
- Insufficient lighting
- Sudden dips or rises in the height of pavement or flooring.
Types of Slip and Fall Injuries
The slip and fall ordinarily results in a person falling backward on a slippery surface and injuring their back, neck and head. The trip and fall victim usually falls forward on an uneven surface and injures their hands, wrists, arms and shoulders. In either case, the common physical elements are the surface, momentum and gravity.
