Slip, Trip, and fall

Slip, trip, and fall accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, but there is so much more at play than a simple misstep. This type of accident can result in serious injuries, putting the injured party and the site of the incident at risk of litigation to (re)cover some of the costs associated with the event.

There are many circumstances that can lead to a slip, trip, or fall. From uneven surfaces and irregular stairs to slippery floors or missing handrails, CEP’s biomechanical engineers – trained in both medicine and engineering – are well-versed in investigative tactics like gait analysis, code reviews, and surface slip testing. Our experts can examine the scene of the event and correlate the injuries reported to the incident. This comparison allows our experts to ensure the injuries are related to the event, and to identify any contributing factors that may have caused or exacerbated them.

Understanding the injury mechanism and ensuring that the injuries reported correspond to those mechanisms allows for a complete understanding of what happened. The biomechanical engineers at CEP are experts in analyzing, evaluating, and drawing informed conclusions so our clients can move forward with confidence.
