Slips trips and falls generally occur from tripping or slipping on uneven, slippery, or wet surfaces. Throughout Lee County Florida—Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Estero, Sanibel, Captiva, Lehigh Acres, North Myers, Fort Myers Beach, Bonita Springs—hundreds suffer injuries in slips trips and falls each year.
Slips Trips and Falls Are Serious Matters
Accidents such as slips trips and falls are often known as fall accidents. Accordingly, they come in several varieties. For example, slipping often occurs because a surface is wet, lacks slip resistant properties, or is otherwise slippery.
Whereas, tripping hazards result in stumbling and falling down. Especially relevant here, a foreign object on a walking surface, uneven pavement or flooring, or floors with different elevations can case a fall. These slips trips and falls are often quite dangerous because your momentum is forward and falls occur face-first.
Moreover, other defective or dangerous property conditions exist. For example holes, pits, or depressions on property often cause damages. First, stepping in an unexpected hole can cause a fracture. Second, you fall down after sustain this fracture and sustain additional injuries.
Accordingly, many serious injuries result from slips trips and falls. If you or your loved one suffer, then promptly request an ambulance and immediate medical care. Especially relevant, delays seeking treatment may result in a business or property owner claiming your injuries result from some other incident.
