Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents in Chester County

Falls can occur in a split second, and sometimes there is no one to blame except for the person who fell. But that is not always the case. Often, it is a business owner or residential homeowner who shoulders the burden of blame for injuries sustained by visitors to their properties. This is because both owe visitors a duty of care to maintain their premises in a manner that is safe—or to at least warn them of impending dangers.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that over 800,000 people are hospitalized due to serious falls each year. Some of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents in Chester County include:

  • Slippery or wet floors.
  • Uneven floors or walkways.
  • Debris or other items in the pathway of the visitor.
  • Icy sidewalks.
  • Broken or missing handrails.

Recovering Damages in Your Chester County Slip and Fall Case

When you are injured due to a fall, bills continue to pile up, even if you find yourself unable to work. The compensable damages in most slip and fall cases include:

  • Medical bills. Your award or settlement should include payment in full of all your medical expenses related to the slip and fall accident. This includes past, present, and even future costs of care such as doctor’s visits, therapy sessions, and surgeries.
  • Lost wages. Lost income due to your injury is generally part of any award. In some cases, such as when an injury results in a disability, you may be awarded compensation for your diminished capacity to earn a living and loss of future income.
  • Pain and suffering or mental anguish. These non-economic awards are often a part of a settlement or award in a slip and fall case.
