What is the Difference Between a Slip and Fall and Trip and Fall Accident?
Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents are generally two different types of accidents, although in some cases they may be caused by the same property defect. A slip and fall accident is caused when an individual slips and falls on a slippery floor. The slick floor may be caused by ice, water, excess moisture, oil or another slippery condition. A trip and fall accident is caused when there is a defect in the floor such as an unrepaired hole, a protruding board or wire, bunched-up carpet or uneven flooring or sidewalk. Both slip and fall and trip and fall accidents can cause serious injuries, permanent disability, and even death. In fact, according to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, falls were the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries among the elderly.
Injuries and Compensation for Slip, Trip and Fall Accidents
Slip and falls and trip and falls commonly cause hip and bone fractures, ankle and leg fractures, back injuries, head injuries, and broken arms, wrists or fingers – to name a few of the many injuries. If you were injured in a slip and fall or trip and fall accident, you may be able to pursue compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and more.
