What Are Common Injuries That People Get After Slip-And-Fall Accidents?

Slip-and-fall cases result in a host of injuries to the various joints and other areas in the body. Often, the ankle joint is involved. The ankle supports more weight than any other joint in the human body. When a slip and fall happens, the ankle, unfortunately, gives out.

It often buckles or twists, giving rise to serious fractures and serious connective tissue injuries in the joint. These injuries can often require surgery because the fractures are not simple fractures. Instead, they are more complicated, resulting in the bones making up the ankle joint being broken so that the only type of repair is with inserted screws, plates and/or other hardware.

We further see injuries to the wrist or upper extremities when people try to break their fall instinctively. People place their hands out to break the fall, ultimately breaking or severely injuries their wrists, incurring shoulder fractures or injuries such as rotator cuff tears or labrum tears.

Regrettably, people also sustain neck and back injuries due to slip and falls. Even far worse is the potential for serious head trauma with closed-head or serious brain trauma, which has led to death in some cases we have handled.
