What Qualifies as a Slip-and Fall Accident?
Slip and fall accidents can occur in public places or in working environments. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) classifies falls into two groups: same-level falls and elevated falls. Same-level falls include accidents such as slipping on a wet floor, tripping over electrical cords, or injuring oneself by hitting another object during the fall. Same-level falls are the most common type of fall accident, although they are usually less severe than elevated falls. Elevated falls occur less frequently, but results can be much more severe. Injuries and complications from any type of fall can include:
- Broken bones and bone fractures
- Back injuries
- Head injuries and trauma
- Spinal cord injuries
- Lost days of work
- Long-term medical problems
