Common Trip and Fall Injuries

Silbowitz, Garafola, Silbowitz, Schatz & Frederick, LLP -

Trip and fall cases are the most common premises liability claims filed in the United States, and lead to over one million emergency room visits each year. Get the facts on trip and fall injuries and how to take action against those responsible.

Types of Trip and Fall Injuries

A trip and fall injury can happen anywhere that unsafe debris or hazards are left in a walkway or area where foot traffic occurs. A serious trip and fall injury can have a devastating impact on a person’s life and may leave them unable to care for themselves. Common trip and fall injuries include:

  • Head injuries

  • Traumatic brain injuries

  • Neck or spinal cord injuries

  • Nerve damage

  • Broken bones

  • Hip fractures

  • Pulled or torn muscles

  • Sprains

  • Lacerations

Property owners are required to keep their property in safe condition for legal tenants and visitors. When this does not happen, trip and fall injuries may occur. Many property owners will try to dispute your claim by stating that you were partially or entirely responsible for the accident and your injuries. However, if a hazardous condition on their property directly led to your accident, they will be held accountable.

At Silbowitz, Garafola, Silbowitz, Schatz & Frederick, our skilled premises liability attorneys can collect evidence, interview witnesses, and litigate on your behalf in court to prove that the property owner failed to provide a reasonably safe environment for tenants, guests, and passersby.
