Hurt In Any Accident?

Do These And Avoid The Dreaded Slip and Fall

Do These And Avoid The Dreaded Slip and Fall

On March 12, a 41-year-old woman fell down eight flights of stairs at an Indianapolis monument. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. She is said to have collapsed prior to the fall, which could have caused her to fall. While this woman’s fall was likely not caused by neglect on the part of the monument staff, slip and fall accidents do happen.

  • Watch for any wet or icy surfaces. Either avoid them or walk carefully on them.
  • Walk carefully on or avoid uneven, broken, or rocky ground. This may include things such as, cracks in the cement, broken or cracked steps, or broken boards.
  • Watch out for spills, including food or drinks that may have been spilt at a restaurant or grocery store.
  • Be aware of your own physical limitations. If you have trouble walking up long flights of stairs, when possible, take an elevator or escalator. If they are not available, know when you need to take a break to rest for a few minutes.
  • If walking a long distance, even on flat or fairly level ground, know when it is time to sit down and rest for a few minutes, particularly if you have physical limitations.
  • When walking up or down the stairs, if a railing is available, use it. Whether a railing is available or not, do not go up or down the stairs too quickly. You may lose your balance and fall.
  • Pay attention to any warning signs. Signs may warn you of a wet floor, an unstable walkway, or other hazards.

If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, contact us right away. Our Indianapolis injury attorneys are happy to provide you with a free initial review of your case.
