Falls are common causes of injury, according to CDC data, one in ten adults report experiencing a fall each year. Fortunately, the majority of slip-and-fall accidents cause little more than embarrassment, but a significant portion of falls cause more than a bruised ego.

Falls are the second-leading cause of brain injuries in the United States after car accidents. Although elderly individuals face an increased risk of falls, a slip-and-fall accident can happen at any age.

Liability in Nashville Slip and Fall Accidents

Tennessee law requires business and private property owners to take reasonable measures to prevent safety hazards to those lawfully on their property, including taking prompt action to address fall hazards. When a property owner fails to take those reasonable actions and someone is injured, the property owner can be held liable for the damages—typically paid through the property owner’s liability insurance coverage.

“Damages” in personal injury cases are the economic and non-economic consequences of an injury. To compel an insurer to pay out full compensation for damages, the injury victim must present evidence of the following:

  • The property owner owed a duty of care to prevent injuries on their property
  • They breached this duty through negligence
  • Their negligent breach of duty caused a fall and injury
  • The injury victim experienced damages from the injury

Proving liability in a slip-and-fall case requires showing that the property owner was aware of the hazard and failed to take prompt, reasonable action.

A sudden hard fall can have serious impacts on the body, resulting in one or more of the following common fall injuries:
