What types of injuries can occur in an accident caused by unsafe premises?

Though not every slip and fall incident results in an injury, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that 1 out of 5 falls cause a serious injury such as broken bones or a head injury1.

Anyone can be a victim of a slip and fall incident, but those most prone to injury are young children and older adults. Also, those on medications like blood thinners can be prone to more serious injury after a slip and fall incident.

Personal injury cases from accidents involving dangerous and unsafe premises and property conditions can occur anywhere, including:

  • Homes and private properties
