Slip and Fall Accidents Can Cause Severe Injury
When you slip and fall, your body’s momentum can come crashing to the ground. If you are lucky, then you may catch yourself, but a slip and fall accident can lead to:
- Broken hands
- A broken forearm
- A sprained hand
- A sprained forearm
If you are not able to catch yourself with your arm, then even more severe injuries may result. These injuries could include:
- Fractured tailbone
- high risk among the elderly
- Fractured skull
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
These are just some of the injuries that may arise from a slip and fall accident, not the entire list of possible outcomes.

Unsafe Premises Can Be a Liability for Slip and Fall Accidents
Those who are responsible for upkeep on a given property must be aware of possible slip and fall hazards and eliminate those hazards before an accident occurs. Some of the possible precursors for a slip and fall accident include:
- The presence of puddles or leaks
- Floors that are overly slick or made slick by liquid
- Flooring, such as rugs, that is not secured and might lead somebody to slip
- Stairs or other walking services that are not level
- An absence of handrails and other safety equipment meant to prevent falls
These or other hazards may have led to you or your loved one being injured in a slip and fall accident. If this is the case, then you may consult a law firm about seeking compensation for your losses with the help of a Clermont slip and fall injury lawyer.
