Slip & Fall Injury

Home / Slip & Fall Injury

A slip and fall injury, also known as a trip and fall, is a premises liability claim, a type of personal injury claim or case based on a person slipping (or tripping) on the premises of another and, as a result, suffering injury. It is a tort. A person who is injured by falling may be entitled to monetary compensation for the injury from the owner or person in possession of the premises where the injury occurred.

Liability for slip or trip and fall injuries may arise based upon a defendant’s ownership of the premises where the injury occurred, their control of the premises, or both.

Premises liability may range from things from injuries caused by a variety of hazardous conditions, including open excavations, uneven pavement, standing water, crumbling curbs, wet floors, falling objects, inadequate security, insufficient lighting, loose flooring material bulging carpeting, concealed holes, improperly secured mats, cords in walkways or defects in chairs or benches.


When you’re injured in an accident, it can lead to inflammation in your body which causes more problems. Inflammation will slow the healing process because essential nutrients won’t be able to make it to the parts of your body that need them. When you have chiropractic adjustments, it will help mobilize your spine and allow it to begin the healing process faster.


Another problem you could face after being in an accident is developing scar tissue. Your muscles may develop scar tissue after an injury because it’s the body’s natural response. This scar tissue, in turn, will cause you to feel stiff and uncomfortable for quite some time. Scar tissue can eventually heal by itself, but a chiropractor can target the damaged areas and break up the scar tissue faster. As a result, you’ll start to feel better, faster.
