Slip and Fall FAQs
Although there are several types of accidents that cause injury from falling, slipping is the most common. We don’t often see the cause of the slip as readily as an item that we might trip over like a bump on a walking surface, or a hole that we might fall into ― making slip and fall cases particularly nuanced.
A slip and fall accident is defined by a slip in which you lose contact between your foot and the surface below. Recovery of your equilibrium, while falling, is reflexive and often results in over-corrections made by the body to try to regain balance. Injury from a slip and fall accident usually results from the striking of a rigid surface. The most common injury is bruising, but victims of slip and fall accidents can easily tear muscles, tendons, or even break bones.
