Injuries from Slip and Fall Accidents
With some rare exceptions for accidents on government property, at the workplace or trespassers or children, victims may be entitled to recover compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering. Some of the most common injuries associated with a slip and fall accident include:
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
- Broken bones
These injuries can be expensive and require a great deal of time for recovery. If the property owner or a manager should have known about the dangerous conditions or did know about the dangerous conditions and failed to remove it, individuals who sustained injuries may be entitled to recover funds for their pain and associated medical problems. Wet and slippery floors, torn carpets, cracks or holes and icy sidewalk surfaces or broken railings can all cause a slip and fall accident.
In the event that you have recently sustained injuries, consulting with a lawyer as soon as possible is strongly recommended. In many cases, the injury associated with your slip and fall accident may have ongoing and serious consequences. You may be unable to earn a living or ever return to work after a slip and fall accident, and this makes all the more important to retain the right to an attorney to help you. Slip and fall accidents may leave you paying the price, but you can hold the responsible parties liable in court for a slip and fall claim.
