The Most Common Places Where Slip and Fall Accidents Occur
There are few places where many of the slip and fall accidents occur in New Orleans. It’s critical to the safety and protection of employees, visitors, or residents that special attention is given to these areas, including:
Parking lots: A property’s walking paths and entrances may become icy or slippery due to fluid leaks or weather conditions.
Sidewalk: Sidewalks are exposed to the weather and a significant amount of foot traffic that can cause unexpected wear and obstructions that create dangerous walking conditions.
Stairs and ramps: Steps and inclines increase the risk of someone losing balance and falling or even falling on a slippery surface with nowhere to go but down.
Worksites: Unfinished flooring, temporary platforms, and unkempt cords help to make construction sites and other work environments hazardous and prone to accidents.
Store Aisles: Negligent employees or guests at stores often spill water, hand sanitizer, or other hazardous substances that can cause people to slip and fall.
Injuries that occur in slip and fall accidents
Injuries from a slip and fall accident can vary, but there are some very common ones that we regularly see with our clients you should know about. That’s because they can impact your life in some pretty catastrophic ways.
Back and head trauma: When you fall onto your head or back, it can cause a concussion, contusion, or spinal cord injury. These lead to limiting your cognitive abilities or mobility.
Hip, ankle, wrist, and arm fractures: Any kind of fall can end up moving your joints the wrong way or even break a bone that requires weeks or even months to heal.
Lacerations: Depending on where your slip and fall accident occurs, it can result in cuts, scrapes, or even deeper wounds that can end up being life-threatening in some cases.
