Slip and Fall

Cincinnati Slip & Fall Lawyers

A Personal & Compassionate Approach to Your Injury Case

Slipping and falling can be more than just embarrassing, as these incidents
can also cause serious injuries. If you were hurt somewhere other than
your home in a slip and fall accident, you may be able to hold the property
owner responsible with a premises liability claim for compensation.

Slip and fall accidents often happen because of slippery floor conditions.
Pools of water, cleaning solutions, oil spills, ice, spilled liquids,
and plumbing leaks should be cleaned up immediately or designated with
a wet floor sign. Injury can also occur because of slick carpet, uneven
flooring, poor visibility, and a lack of handrails in stairways. The National
Floor Safety Institute states that floors and flooring materials contribute
directly to about 2 million accidents every year.

These accidents can happen in just about any public or private space, including:

  • Shopping malls

  • Schools
  • Workplaces
  • Stadiums

The Devastating Consequences of Slip & Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are not a laughing matter. They are responsible
for numerous emergency room visits each year and often result in fractures,
spinal injures like slipped disc, serious bruising, and more. One most
common and most dangerous fall injuries is a hip fracture. This is particularly
true with elderly men and women who experience a fall, as it is more common
and can lead to more serious injuries. When these older individuals suffer
a hip fracture, it can lead to life-threatening surgery, permanent limited
mobility, and a very painful recovery.
