Stores such as IKEA and other large department stores all have similar accidents that can injure the patrons. The most common accidents are caused by slippery or wet floors. These can injure shoppers regardless of their age, health, etc. These slip and fall accidents happen throughout the store and the outside premises and include: parking lots, entrance ways, aisles and restrooms. These accident can result in injuries to the hip, knee, shoulders, neck and back of the head. This is due to the customer falling backwards when their legs go out from under them although it is possible to suffer other injuries.
Accidents caused by unsecured rug or carpeting are also common in IKEA and other retail establishments. These tend to happen near doors and entrances as there are usually rugs laid down for people to wipe their feet on upon entering the store. Due to the forward tripping, and extending your arms out to brace for the impact, during these accidents injuries can involve the hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders. Victims may also suffer injuries to the face, mouth, teeth and eyes if they fall hard enough.
Serious head and neck injuries are common in IKEA accidents involving falling merchandise. Head and neck injuries are also common in IKEA tractor trailer and delivery truck accidents.
