Slip and Fall Accident Types
All Types of Slip and Fall Accidents Can Lead to Serious Injuries. Our Lawyers Recover Just Compensation for Slip and Fall Accident Victims Nationwide.
When a fall leads to serious injuries, it can be difficult to know what to do next. Even if you have health insurance, the out-of-pocket costs can be substantial, and your pain, suffering, and limited mobility can impact all aspects of your day-to-day life. Over time, the costs of your injuries can add up significantly, and in some respects your life may never be the same.
On top of all of this, you need to think about your legal rights. While asserting your legal rights is important, it is also extremely difficult. Not only do you need to determine who is liable, but you need to be able to prove it, and you need to make clear that you are prepared to go to trial if necessary.

7 Common Types of Slip and Fall Accidents
We represent individuals and families nationwide in all types of slip and fall accident cases. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured as a result of any of the following, we encourage you to contact us promptly for a free consultation:
1. Slip-and-Fall Accidents
Slip-and-fall accidents can happen anywhere, anytime. From slippery flooring surfaces to rain, snow, and ice, numerous factors can be to blame in these dangerous accidents. We represent victims and families in slip-and-fall accident cases in all 50 states, and we can make sure you are fairly compensated for your losses.
2. Trip-and-Fall Accidents
Trip-and-fall accidents are also extremely common. Most of us encounter trip hazards in our daily life; and, while we are often able to avoid them, this is not always the case. Whether you or your loved one tripped indoors or outdoors, and whether the accident happened at a business or on someone’s personal private property, our lawyers can fight to recover just compensation on your behalf.
3. Falls from Heights
Falls from heights often result in severe traumatic injuries. We handle cases involving accidents on construction sites and other unprotected elevated areas, as well as cases involving broken railings and other issues. Regardless of what happened, if you or a loved one suffered a significant fall, you should speak with an attorney about your family’s legal rights.
4. Staircase and Escalator Accidents
While staircases and escalators should not be dangerous, they often are. We handle staircase and escalators cases involving accidents occurring in shopping malls, office buildings, medical facilities, entertainment venues, hotels, casinos, restaurants and nightclubs, and other venues nationwide.
5. Workplace Accidents
Many slip and fall accidents occur at work; and, while some injured workers will be limited to filing for workers’ compensation benefits, it will also be possible to file a premises liability or personal injury claim in many cases. When you contact us about your case, we will examine the facts involved to determine if you have a claim against the property owner or another third party.
6. Child Slip and Fall Accidents
Sadly, many slip and fall accidents involve children. If your child has been injured in a fall anywhere other than your own home, we encourage you to speak with one of our lawyers promptly. In fact, even if your child fell in your home (i.e. if he or she fell out of an unsafe crib), you could still have a claim for damages. Our lawyers can thoroughly assess your legal rights and recover the compensation you deserve.
7. Senior Slip and Fall Accidents
Seniors frequently suffer serious injuries in slip and fall accidents as well. If your spouse or aging parent has been injured in a slip, trip, or fall, our attorneys can help make sure you have the financial resources you need to cover your medical expenses and other costs.
