Causes of Slip and Fall Injuries

Losing one's footing and falling down may seem like a minor incident, but in many cases, these types of accidents result in serious injuries that can affect a victim's health and well-being for years to come. Fall injuries can result in broken bones, sprained or dislocated joints, traumatic brain injuries, and damage to the neck or spine. Some of the common reasons that these injuries occur include:

  • Ice and snow - Slippery surfaces may be expected during inclement weather, but property owners should still take precautionary measures to clear walkways or provide signs warning people of slick floors. Under Illinois law, property owners may be liable for injuries that occurred because of an unnatural accumulation of snow or ice. For example, improper drainage that allowed ice to build up on a walking surface could result in serious fall injuries.
  • Uneven or damaged surfaces - Property owners should make sure all floors, sidewalks, or other walking surfaces are free from tripping hazards. Uneven sidewalks, potholes in parking lots, missing floor tiles, or other issues could cause a visitor to trip, fall, and suffer an injury. Property owners may also be liable for injuries that occurred because they did not provide proper lighting that would ensure that visitors could notice any hazards.
  • Damaged or dangerous stairwells - A person can suffer severe injuries when falling down stairs, and these types of accidents may occur if stairs are broken, if surfaces do not provide the proper traction, if handrails are missing or damaged, or if a stairwell does not have adequate lighting.
  • Broken handrails, balconies, or elevated walkways - Falls from an upper level to a lower level can be especially dangerous, and they may result in serious injuries or wrongful death. A person may experience this type of fall because damaged handrails did not support their weight or because of the collapse of a balcony or walkway.
