Slip-and-Fall Statistics and Causes

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2006 falls accounted for a quarter of all nonfatal injuries in the United States and 12 percent of all deaths. The number of fall-related deaths among older adults has increased significantly over the past decade, and each year more than one-third of adults over the age of 65 are subject to falls.

Falls can result from a number of property conditions, such as:

  • Wet floors
  • Slippery floors
  • Uneven floors
  • Slick sidewalks
  • Ice
  • Improperly placed carpets, rugs or mats
  • Uneven pavement
  • Poorly lit pathways
  • Obstruction of walkways by objects

Missouri law imposes upon business owners, property owners and landlords a duty to maintain their premises and to fix or warn of any known or knowable danger. A person who has suffered a preventable injury as a result of the failure to address such dangers may be entitled to compensation.

Since 1954, the attorneys at Bruntrager & Billings P.C. have been helping clients obtain financial settlements in premises liability lawsuits. If you or a loved one has been injured in a fall as a result of the carelessness or negligence of another, you may be entitled to compensation that can help cover the costs of medical bills, lost wages and future treatment.
