Many people assume that slips, trips and falls are minor incidents that rarely result in anything more than bumps and bruises. However, slip and fall accidents are the leading cause of emergency room visits in America, according to the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI). They are the second leading cause of death behind auto accidents, and cause nearly 17,000 deaths every year.

Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents
Coloradans are all too familiar with one of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents: icy conditions. While Denver’s winter months contribute to many premises liability cases involving icy sidewalks and slippery parking lots, slip and fall accidents can happen in a number of places at any time of the year. Some common causes of slip and fall injuries include:
- Inadequate lighting
- Poorly maintained, cracked or uneven floors, pavements or sidewalks
- Handrail or guard-rail failure
- Dangerous workplace conditions
- Nursing home negligence
- Debris in walkways
- Wet surfaces
A property owner is responsible for ensuring the safety of you and other visitors on the property, and can be held liable for a failure to properly maintain the area or adequately posting warnings of potential danger.
Slip and Fall Injuries
Our Denver attorneys see a variety of serious injuries that result from a slip and fall accident. These include:
- Back and neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries
- Broken hips
- Complex orthopedic injuries
- Torn ligaments and tendons
These injuries can cause severe pain and may require extensive medical treatment and therapy. You could be faced with large medical expenses and lost wages that you and your family cannot afford. In the most tragic cases, these injuries can lead to the death of a beloved family member.
