Fort Myers Slip and Fall Accident Attorney
Slip and fall hazards can be found everywhere, and while most of us try hard to avoid tripping or falling, it can be unavoidable in some situations. Poor property conditions like uncontrolled vegetation, spotty lighting, and uneven walkways can lead to slips, trips, and falls. Visitors must keep their eyes open to potential hazards when a property is poorly maintained.
What is a Slip and Fall Accident?
Slip and fall accidents are a danger to all visitors to a property, especially elderly patrons. Because there are many causes to slip and fall accidents, causes range from wet floors to poor lighting. Slip and fall accidents can also happen in the workplace, like on construction sites.

If another party's negligence is to blame for your accident, you have a right to demand financial compensation.

COMMON INJURIES IN SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS
Slip and fall accidents can lead to severe injuries and chronic pain. Regardless of what caused your slip and fall accident, the impact your body takes in a fall can be traumatic. The most common injuries sustained in a slip-and-fall accident include the following:
- Broken Bones: Falling onto appendages or using an arm or leg to break your fall can lead to bone fractures and severe bone damage.
- Spinal Injuries: When someone falls backward, which can happen in slipping accidents, it’s not uncommon to land on one’s back. Falls, where one’s back is impacted, can lead to herniated discs and vertebrae fractures.
- Facial Injuries: During slip and fall accidents, falling on one’s face is not uncommon. If your face strikes the ground, you can experience broken teeth, serious cuts, and jaw and nose fractures.
- Neck Injuries: Neck injuries can occur from the impact even if you break your fall with your arms and legs. Whiplash is a common neck injury that happens when the delicate tendons and nerves in the neck are damaged from forceful back-and-forth movement.
- Concussions & Traumatic Brain Injury: When your head collides with a hard surface, the violent impact can cause brain injury. Even if the head doesn’t impact a surface, the force of the impact can shake the brain enough to cause trauma.
- Chronic Pain: Falling can lead to severe injury, and while your body can heal from the trauma, many victims experience long-term pain from their injuries.
