Slip and Fall

Injured After a Slip and Fall?

Slip and fall injuries can happen anywhere, and are often the result of unsafe walking conditions. Spills, debris, and clutter can all make a surface treacherous to cross. If you fall as a result of an unsafe condition, the owner or property manager may be liable for your injuries. Many slip and fall victims experience shame and embarrassment for not being able to stay upright. We are here to tell you that slip and fall accidents are not necessarily your fault. We can help you get past this and help you secure reimbursement for your resulting damages.

Know Your Rights:

The most important right you should exercise immediately after a slip and fall accident is the right to record the scene. If you tripped over an uneven surface, or slipped in a puddle of rainwater that wasn’t properly marked, then take photos of everything. It is easy for property managers to rectify conditions that lead to an accident before an insurance claim is filed, so it is vital for you to have detailed photos of the walking conditions at the time of your fall.

Understanding your Injuries:

Slip and fall accidents can range from relatively minor to completely life-altering. Below are the most common injuries sustained by slip and fall accident victims. Understanding what you are most likely to experience can help to expedite your medical care following an accident.

  • Head and/or Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI).
  • Hip fractures.
  • Spinal cord injuries.
  • Shoulder injuries (such as rotator cuff injuries).
  • Other sprains or fractures.
  • Safety tips

    Stay cognizant of your surroundings when you are walking in an unfamiliar place. Avoiding hazards can help you to avoid significant injury. If you do wind up falling, seek medical attention immediately since spinal cord injuries are common with this type of accident.
