Common Seattle Slip, Trip, and Fall Injuries

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on May 19, 2016

Slips, trips, and falls are common jokes in slapstick comedy, but they can cause serious injuries to those who suffer through them in the real world. Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. has handled many Seattle slip, trip, and fall injuries over the years. Here are some of the most common types of slip, trip, and fall injuries our clients have faced:

• Slips on water, mud, or spills. Seattle’s rainy weather means that water and mud frequently get tracked into buildings, increasing the chances for a slip, trip, and fall. The risk is highest around entryways that are not frequently cleaned and monitored. In addition, a spill of any substance can increase the risk of a slip, trip, and fall.
• Tripping on broken flooring. Broken floor tiles, tears in carpeting, and rugs or mats that are not secured all pose trip hazards in any number of buildings, which can increase the risk of a fall. Businesses have a responsibility to address these problems promptly, and to warn customers if a broken floor area cannot be immediately fixed.
• Falling from a height. Falls from a height are the number one cause of construction and other workplace accidents and the leading cause of workplace deaths statewide, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). A fall from a ladder or scaffolding, on a flight of stairs, or into a pit or trench can all cause much more severe injuries than the same fall occurring on a level surface.
