A trip to the grocery store or another Tampa business or office that ends in a slip and fall accident can be a life-changing event for the accident victim and their family members. A fall can cause a variety of serious injuries, from broken bones to head wounds. In many cases, slip and falls can be fatal. If you are searching for information on general premises liability, you can find more information here. Falls are a particular threat for Florida’s older residents. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that falls are the leading cause of death from an injury among adults who are age 65 years old or older.
Injuries related to falls are also common for employees who work in hazardous conditions. Many jobs require employees to be on their feet for hours at a time, which often increases the incidence of these accidents. This is especially true of certain professions, such as healthcare workers. If the owner or operator of a business, government office, private home or other property played a role in a slip and fall accident, they can be held legally responsible for the accident victim’s injuries and other losses. They can be made to pay for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
