Slip-and-Fall Accidents by the Numbers
A person of any age can become the victim of a hazardous or unsafe environment, but adults 55 years and older have a higher risk of slipping and falling.1
It’s important to remember that slip-and-fall incidents are serious events: falls are one of the leading causes of unintentional injury in the U.S., resulting in 8.9 million emergency room visits every year.2
Where Slip-and-Falls Can Occur
Slips and trips most often occur in areas with uneven ground or areas where objects obstruct a path or walkway. Ramps, cluttered hallways, unstable work surfaces, ladders, or stairs are all common places for premises liability accidents. Accidents can happen on public or private property, in places like grocery stores, movie theaters, government buildings, the homes of friends or neighbors, or even in malls or parking lots. Although the owner or non-owner resident has a duty to keep their property safe for visitors or customers, slip-and-falls are usually the result of poorly designed or maintained properties.
