Tampa Slip and Fall Attorneys
We have all heard the jokes about slip and fall or trip and fall accidents: the mother who slipped and fell on the banana peel while shopping in the local grocery store; the elderly man who tripped on the uneven walkway or sidewalk while exiting the restaurant. For years, the insurance industry has made light of these accidents. The reality, however, is far more serious.
According the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 8 million slip and fall accidents occur in the U.S. every year. Of those falls, more than 2 million result in moderate to severe bodily injuries and an estimated 19,000 deaths. In fact, slip and fall accidents are a leading cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in the U.S. every year.
