Slip And Fall Injuries
Injuries that can result from a slip and fall can extend well beyond a bruised ego and can include a concussion or bleeding head injury, traumatic brain injury (TMI), potential neck or spinal cord injuries, back pain or spinal fracture, limb fractures, internal bleeding or other types of cuts and lacerations that may result in scarring.
Age can often play a role in a slip and fall injury and may also have ramifications for healing. And while assisted living facilities may be inclined to treat a slip or fall injury as commonplace or “expected”, each should be carefully assessed by a medical professional.
Poor facility management, whether at a location such as a retail mall or a construction site are also common environments for slip and fall injuries and accidents.
Most slip and fall accident and injuries in St. Catharines and across the country occur during winter months with weather as a contributing factor as icy, wet or snowy pavements, or building interiors can increase the risk. In addition to public spaces, slip and fall accidents also occur with more frequency in winter months at workplace sites.
