Property owners have a duty to ensure that the property they own is safe for visitors. In some cases, the flooring in buildings might be a factor that leads to accidents. This is often the case if the flooring is uneven, wet, slippery or improperly maintained.
Slip-and-fall accidents are the reason for more than 1 million emergency room visits each year. When considering all fall injuries, fractures are the most common injury that can occur. In some cases, the fracture occurs in the hip. Hip fractures are the most serious fractures associated with falls. These fractures can lead to serious health complications or death.
