What kind of injuries happen in a slip and fall accident?

by | Sep 17, 2020

Slip and Fall Accidents (1)

Certain accident types naturally lead to certain types of injuries. Slip and fall accidents are no different. When we have clients that have been injured in a slip and fall accident, we tend to have one or more of the follow injuries:

  • Broken wrists or arms, sprained or broken ankles, or fractured pelvises and hips. In fact, for elderly persons, over 95% of hip fractures are caused by falling. The angle of the fall and our reflexive movements to stop our fall tend to make these injuries more likely.
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Falls are the most common cause of brain injuries and concussions. Brain trauma is very serious and can cause long-term damage such as chronic headaches, depression, behavioral changes, and seizures.
  • Emotional Trauma. Especially for the elderly, slip and fall victims, even if they’re not seriously injured, become afraid of falling. This fear may cause a person to cut down on their everyday activities. When a person is less active, they become weaker and this increases their chances of falling.
