You are not the only one wondering about the answer to this question. Sometimes the survivors of people who have died in slip and fall accidents are stunned to hear from insurance companies who claim that a slip and fall accident injury cannot be serious enough to cause a death. These insurance adjusters often argue that the person died from another cause that was independent of the slip and fall accident.
This Isn’t Necessarily True
The truth is that it is indeed possible to die from a slip and fall accident injury. Death is possible, even though it is, thankfully, not the most common consequence when someone trips on an uneven staircase at an office building in Bloomington, slips on a wet floor at a store in Normal, or otherwise falls on an Illinois property.
Consider, for example, what would happen if the person who fell suffered a significant traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, internal injury, or other injury in the fall. The devastating result could be death.
