According to the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), there are over 8 million falls in the U.S. annually that result in visits to the emergency room. About 1 million of those are slip and fall accidents. In addition, the CDC notes that falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths for adults aged 65 and older.

A slip, trip, or fall can be an embarrassing incident for anyone, but it’s much worse when it leads to serious injury or death. In some cases, slipping, tripping, or falling can occur in the home or at the workplace. However, you may also slip, trip, or fall in a public or commercial space.

When this happens, you might feel like it’s your fault, but if business owners were aware or should have been aware of the danger and did nothing to ensure your safety, you may have a case for compensation. An experienced slip and fall lawyer can help fight to receive a fair settlement.
