Serious Injuries Caused By Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents are one of the leading causes of unintentional injuries both in California and through the United States. According to the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), injuries sustained in these accidents can be severe and potentially disabling, and end up costing consumers as much as $13 million in medical expenses each year. Common types of slip and fall injuries include the following:
- Muscle and tendon strains, sprains, and tears;
- Broken bones, most commonly in the hips, pelvis, ankles, and wrists;
- Spinal injuries, such as damaged vertebrae and herniated disks;
- Head injuries, including concussion and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

What Clients Say
I was rear ended as I was driving my car. Vibhu Talwar represented me and got me money for my car and my injuries. I was very happy with his services.
Mr. Talwar provided excellent council for my case. He was thorough, detailed and extremely knowledgeable about the letter of the law. He seemed to relish the challenge of competing against the huge law firm that brought a case against me. I would highly recommend Mr. Talwar for any legal needs.
Common Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents
While generally attributed as accidental, slip and fall injuries can often be traced to the reckless or negligent actions of another party. The National Safety Council (NSC) reports that common causes of slips, trips, and falls include:
- Lack of handrails on steps;
- Improper lighting;
- Cluttered, overstocked aisles;
- Uneven surfaces on walkways;
- Wet, slippery flooring surfaces and areas prone to spills.
These conditions often exist in shopping malls and grocery stores, at restaurants and resorts, in office buildings, and at parks and recreational facilities. When accidents do happen, the property owner or manager and their insurance company may be liable for any injuries that result.
