    Understanding Slip and Fall Accidents

    Slip and fall accidents occur when an individual loses their footing due to a dangerous condition on someone else’s property. This can result in a wide range of injuries, including:

    • Broken bones: Hips, wrists, ankles, and arms are commonly fractured in slip and fall accidents, especially for older adults.
    • Head injuries: Falls can lead to concussions, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), and even fatal head trauma in severe cases.
    • Spinal cord injuries: These catastrophic injuries can result in paralysis and a lifetime of challenges.
    • Soft tissue injuries: Cuts, scrapes, bruises, and muscle strains are common consequences of slip and fall accidents.
    • Psychological trauma: The shock and fear of the fall, coupled with the pain and uncertainty of recovery, can lead to anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
    Taking Action After a Slip and Fall Accident

    Here are crucial steps to take after a slip and fall accident:

    • Seek medical attention: Your health is the top priority. Get a medical evaluation to document your injuries, even if they seem minor at first.
    • Report the accident: Report the accident to the property owner or manager and document the details, including the date, time, and location of the fall.
    • Gather evidence: If possible, take pictures of the accident scene, the hazardous condition that caused your fall and any injuries you sustained. Ask any witnesses for their contact information and write down their accounts of the accident.
    • Keep all receipts and bills: Maintain detailed records of all medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs associated with your accident.
    • Contact a slip and fall accident lawyer: An experienced lawyer can advise you on your legal options and ensure your rights are protected.
    The Most Common Causes of Slips and Falls

    Winter weather is a culprit for injuries such as slips and falls in Alberta. These accidents can take place due to snow and ice buildup on walkways. Causes include:

    • Black ice or ice buildup on a sidewalk, driveway, walkway, and stairs
    • Snow or debris on sidewalks, walkways, driveways, and stairs
    • Uneven stairways or stairs that are not up to building codes
    • Sideways or walkways that are uneven
    • Freshly mopped or wet floors in malls, grocery stores, restaurants, movie theatres or bars
    Addressing a Slip and Fall Injury

    Removing snow and ice away from walking surfaces is a responsibility of municipalities, businesses, and homeowners. Owners must do their part in reducing the risk of slippery surfaces. Those who choose to ignore winter hazards, putting you and others at risk could be negligent under occupiers’ liability law and responsible for your injuries. The Alberta Occupiers Liability act states, “An occupier of a premises owes a duty to take such care as in all the circumstances of the case is reasonable to see that each person entering on the premises and the property brought on the premises by that person are reasonably safe while on the premises.”

    Case Results

    • I suffered a brain injury and other serious injuries when the car I was driving was struck by a semi-truck. In addition to my physical injuries I experienced psychological injuries and was wholly unable to do my job or live my life daily. The insurance company offered me $6,500.00 to settle my claim. Steve had my back and brought my case to mediation where he obtained $850,000.00 in compensation one month short of trial. Steve has the trucking expertise to understand the process and was available to me throughout the process. Would absolutely recommend Grover Law Firm to anyone that has been injured in a serious trucking crash.
