Slips Trips and Falls occur more frequently than you might expect. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that direct medical costs of falls in the U.S. in 2013 were $34 billion. Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injury, and most fractures suffered by older adults are caused by falls, according to CDC.

The National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) has stated that slip and fall accidents are the leading cause of workers’ compensation claims and the leading cause of work-related injuries for workers age 55 and older.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, it is in your best interests to get a free consult with one of our experienced Milwaukee slip and fall attorneys. You may be entitled to file a premises liability claim for compensation.

Why and Where Slip and Fall Accidents Occur

Why and Where Slip and Fall Accidents Occur

Slip and fall accidents can happen practically anywhere, indoors or out. When a floor is wet or slippery, or the pavement is icy or littered with loose gravel or other debris, an ambulant person may slip, lose balance, and fall (slip and fall).

Falls also occur when people trip over obstacles (trip and fall), encounter sticky spots or impediments in the walking path (stump and fall), or fall when the foot meets a hole or failure in the walking surface (step and fall).

Property owners are required to use reasonable care in maintaining their properties.

When they fail to do so and others are injured as a result, property owners may be held liable for those injuries. You need an experienced Milwaukee slip and fall lawyer to determine whether your injuries were caused by a property owner’s negligence.

Places where premises liability can happen include:

  • Commercial Building
  • Store
  • Office
  • Private Home
  • Rental Home/Apartment
  • Streets
  • Public Transportation
