Butler County Slip & Fall Accident Attorneys
Preventable falls happen everyday due to unsafe or poorly maintained premises. Whether you fell at the grocery store due to a wet floor, slipped on snow or ice due to lack of clean up, fell from a ladder while on the job, or tripped on the side walk due to lack of maintenance, your injuries could be serious.
Falls are the leading cause of emergency room visits – approximately 8 million are reported each year. Injuries sustained from falls have become a widespread public safety problem. The National Floor Safety Institute has some surprising statistics regarding slip & fall accidents, including:
- Slip and falls are the leading cause of worker’s compensation claims & occupational injury for those 55 and older.
- 60% of all deaths associated with falls involve people 75 years and older.
- The annual cost for compensation & medical bills associated with slip and falls is approximately $70 billion annually.
Under premises liability laws, a property owner is responsible in providing a safe environment for pedestrians in order to protect those against preventable accident or injury. If your fall was caused by a poorly maintained premise, you could be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages and pain & suffering.
