Trip & Fall Accidents

Trip and fall accidents can occur due to uneven surfaces or objects on the floor. Broken sidewalks or poorly placed objects on the floor can cause a trip and fall that can lead to injuries to the front of the head or face, hands, arms, or elbows. These injuries could be severe and could affect someone’s overall quality of life.

Sidewalks and floors should be maintained well by the property owners to avoid any falls and injuries. If property owners show negligence in maintaining their property to ensure safety for all, they can cause serious injuries to people who are on their property.
