Types of Slip and Fall Injuries

Slip and fall injuries range in severity and may occur on commercial properties that are unsafe due to slippery or unstable surfaces, torn carpeting, potholes in parking lots, recently waxed or mopped floors, defective sidewalks, and loose floorboards. Here is a brief list of the types of slip and fall injuries that are widely seen in Chicago:

  • Broken Bones: Broken bones can be minor or more serious injuries that demand a number of surgeries. They can also spark tissue damage which may necessitate therapy to prevent chronic pain.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: When the spinal cord is compressed or severed, spinal cord injuries arise. In many cases, spinal cord injuries are life-threatening and require immediate medical attention and long-term treatment plans that are very costly.
  • Head Injuries: A head injury, especially when it causes bleeding, swelling, and a loss of consciousness, demands immediate medical care. While minor concussions typically improve on their own, traumatic brain injuries can lead to memory, mobility, and behavioral issues.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Soft tissue injuries may not become apparent until days or weeks following a fall. They can range from ankle sprains to ligament and tendon tears. When they are ignored, chronic pain and subsequent injuries become likely.
