Slips, Trips & Falls

Slips, trips and falls often result in debilitating injuries, and in some cases, death. Our experts evaluate all the factors that can contribute to a slip and fall including environmental, pedestrian contact surface, human factors and behavioural factors.

TYPES OF INVESTIGATIONS
  • The construction and maintenance of the fall location (for non-compliance with building codes and standards)
  • Walking surface material type and contamination/condition
  • Transitions between walking surfaces
  • Footwear material type
  • The physical and mental condition of the individual
  • Possibility of individual impairment by alcohol or drugs
  • The walking/running speed of the individual
  • Industrial & construction accidents
  • The biomechanics to ensure the injuries are related to the accident
