Common Slip and Fall Injuries

Poorly lit staircases, slippery steps, unmaintained stairs, or missing stairs all pose serious risks to visitors of a property. Many of these are easy problems to address, but sadly, not all premises owners take good care of their properties. While some victims may only suffer minor cuts and bruises, falling down the stairs is likely to result in much more severe, if not life-threatening, injuries. The following injuries are commonly related to stairway slip and fall accidents:

  • Fractures
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Concussions
  • Contusions
  • Lacerations

In serious accidents, the sudden, severe impact of a fall may be deadly.
