A serious slip and fall accident can leave a person with severe injuries. Injuries are exacerbated when a slip and fall involves a fall from a height, when the person involved in the fall is frail (common for older adults), or when the angle of the fall is especially dangerous. Common injuries might include:
- Traumatic brain injuries;
- Bone fracture injuries;
- Internal injuries;
- Soft tissue injuries;
- Lacerations or bruise injuries; and
- Spinal cord injuries.
A person may also suffer psychological and emotional harm post-slip and fall as a result of their injuries.

A premises liability claim holds that the owner of the property where your accident (slip and fall) occurred should be held liable for your damages if your accident occurred as a result of a dangerous condition on the property and the property owner knew or should have known about the condition, yet failed to remedy it within a reasonable amount of time.
