Idaho Slip and Fall Accident Attorneys
A simple fall may sound harmless, but these accidents can result in serious—in some cases, even fatal—injuries. Victims of slip and fall accidents may be left with massive medical costs or long-term expenses related to rehabilitation or lost wages. When slip and fall accidents occur at a business or public place, victims might have a right to compensation from the property owner for their injuries.

Where do slip and fall accidents happen?
- Restaurants: Slippery substances are constantly at risk of being spilled in restaurants. For this reason, restaurant owners and managers know that they have an obligation to continually monitor the floor for spills to prevent customers from slipping in a hidden puddle.
- Grocery stores: With hundreds of jars and bottles of liquid lining grocery store shelves, as well as fruit and vegetables that can become slippery when they fall to the floor, grocery stores and supermarkets are laden with slipping hazards. It isn’t always possible to prevent slipping hazards from forming, but it is the responsibility of a store to warn customers of the hazard and remove it as soon as possible.
- Hotels: Hotels often use slick flooring, such as tile or marble, in their lobbies. When these surfaces become wet, they can be very difficult for guests and visitors to navigate safely.
- Workplaces: Studies have found that about 16% of all workers’ compensation claims are related to slip and fall injuries, and that over 25% of all workplace injury-related costs stem from these accidents. As you can see, the costs are out of proportion with the share of claims related to falls, due to the high costs of treatment often associated with slip and fall injuries.
