A Slip and Fall Can Result in Serious Injuries

The National Floor Safety Institute reports that as many as one million Americans are injured in slip and fall accidents every year. The risk of these accidents should never be taken lightly—slips, trips, and falls have the potential to cause very serious injuries. Some common examples of slip and fall accident injuries include: 


  • Broken bones;
  • Soft tissue damage;
  • Shoulder injuries; 
  • Hip fractures;
  • Back injuries; 
  • Facial injuries, including dental injuries; 
  • Concussions/traumatic brain injuries (TBIs); and
  • Spinal cord damage. 

Understand Slip and Fall Liability in Tennessee

Slip and fall accidents fall under premises liability law. Tennessee businesses and property owners have a legal obligation to keep their premises in safe and secure condition for invitees. When a property owner fails to live up to their responsibilities, they can be held legally liable for a person’s injuries. To be clear, a property owner is not automatically liable for a slip and fall or trip and fall that occurs on their premises. Under Tennessee law, injured victims must prove liability. Here are four basic elements of a successful slip and fall accident claim:

  1. An unreasonable slipping or tripping hazard exists on the premises;
  2. The business/property owner knew or should have known about the hazard;
  3. The business/property owner could have take additional action or precautions to reduce the risk, but they failed to do so; and
  4. The slipping or tripping hazard caused the victim’s injuries. 

There are many different types of safety hazards that can cause serious slip and fall accidents. Some examples include slippery or wet surfaces, broken floor boards, tattered carpets, damaged walkways, broken stairs, and inadequate lighting. If your accident was caused by a safety hazard, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced Knoxville, TN slip and fall accident attorney right away.
