+ Slip and Fall Statistics in Arizona

Below are some of the more telling statistics regarding these types of accidents in the United States:

  • Slips and falls account for over 1 million hospital emergency room visits, or 12 percent of total falls, according to the National Floor Safety Institute.
  • Only automobile accidents rank above slip-and-fall accidents as causes of accidental deaths in the United States
  • The second leading cause of unintentional injury-related death is falls, and in 2020, 42,114 people died in falls at home and at work, according to Injury Facts.
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the average cost of treatment for a slip and fall is more than $30,000.
  • Over $50 billion dollars is spent annually in the United States on treatment for injuries from non-fatal falls, the CDC reports.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics and the National Safety Council, a non-profit organization designed to help promote safety and the prevention of injuries, keep track of statistics like these.

+ Different Types of Slip and Fall Accidents in Arizona

Slipping and falling accidents can occur at any time and in almost any place, but there are situations in which these accidents occur more often than others. Examples of these contexts include:

  • The workplace
  • At the business of another
  • At a sporting event
  • At a concert or musical event
  • In a crowded public place
  • At home
  • At the home of another
  • In icy conditions
  • At retail outlets

Each of these situations presents different types of legal liability questions, and below is a look at a few of the different negligence standards that could apply.

+ Negligence Standards

In order to decipher which negligence standard should apply to a slip and fall injury situation, the nature of the person’s presence on the property of someone else needs to be defined. For instance, if someone is in the workplace and he or she falls and is injured because of a dangerous condition, then that injured worker could have two legal options.

These options would include filing a workers’ compensation claim, as Arizona law clearly provides benefits to those workers who are injured at the site through no fault of their own.

If someone is injured on the property of another and they are not using it as a work-site location, the first question that must be answered is which legal status applies to the injured party. They are briefly described below:

  • Invitee An invitee is someone who is invited, either expressly or through implied consent, onto the property of another for business purposes. An invitee is entitled to a high degree of protection from the property’s possessor, and this includes the right to be protected from dangerous conditions and/or to be warned of their presence if they cannot reasonably be repaired.
  • Licensee A licensee is someone who is invited onto the property of another for non-business purposes, and this would include social occasions. As is the case with the invitee, the licensee is entitled to protection from dangerous conditions or to be warned of them if they exist and cannot reasonably be discovered by the licensee.
  • Trespasser A trespasser is someone who enters the property of another without permission, and as a result, is not owed a duty of protection from dangerous conditions. However, there are exceptions, including the fact that the trespasser must not be foreseeable by the property’s possessor and that the property should not contain an attractive nuisance that’s likely to attract trespassers.
