Understanding Slip and Fall Injuries
Everyone is at risk for a slip and fall injury as obstacles, unlike other accidents, are everywhere. To put this into context—The National Floor Safety Institutes shows falls are responsible for eight million emergency room visits every year. Along the same lines, slip and falls, overall, account for nearly one million clinic visits.
There's more than a handful of common, public places where slip and fall accidents occur:
- Public pools, fitness centers, and restrooms
- Apartment complexes
- Job sites
- Restaurants, grocery stores, retailers, and other stores
- Elevators, escalators or stairwells
- Commercial buildings
Many slip and fall accidents cause minor injuries and the victims suffer anywhere from bruising to fractures or broken bones. Hitting your head, neck or spine in the right place—and with enough intensity—can invite more catastrophic injuries.
Minor or severe, any disruption to your physical health and inconvenience to your financial life following an accident qualifies you as a candidate for injury-related damages. An attorney might be the line between getting what you're rightfully owed or not recovering any losses at all.
Increase Your Chances of a Settlement
Slip and fall accidents range in severity. There's a chance, if you were injured due to a commercial property owner not properly maintaining his or her building, you might be off of work temporarily while you recover and unsure as to when you can return. In more extreme cases involving debilitating pain, suffering, or disability, you might physically be unable to return-to-work at all.
If your injuries are directly related to a slip and fall accident in a public place due to a spill, hazard, or repair damage—you've come to the right place. We can help you reclaim your future and turn your financial losses into wins by holding negligent building owners accountable and reaching an appropriate settlement with insurance companies that would otherwise offer you the lowest possible amount of your injuries.
