Aspen Hill Slip and Fall Attorney

Falls are an ever-present threat on job sites for independent contractors

Slip and fall accidents can often lead to serious injuries, such as broken bones, spinal cord damage, or even brain injuries. If you or a loved one have been involved in a slip and fall accident, an Aspen Hill slip and fall attorney can help you.

Understanding the Causes of Slip and Fall Injuries

In the US, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries for people aged 65 and over. They are also a major cause of injuries for children under five. Falls can happen anywhere, at any time. Preventing slip and fall accidents starts with understanding the dangers they pose. Slip and falls are the leading cause of accidental injury in the home, and they can happen to anyone at any age.

There are a few things you can do to reduce your risk of slipping and falling:

  • Wear shoes with good traction. This is especially important in winter when ice and snow can make walkways treacherous.
  • Keep your home clean and clutter-free. A cluttered floor is more likely to cause a trip and fall.
  • Make sure all carpets are firmly secured to the floor. Loose carpeting is a major trip hazard.
  • In the bathroom, use a non-slip mat in the tub or shower and keep the floor dry.
  • Install handrails on all stairs, both inside and outside your home.
