Do I Have a Slip and Fall Accident Injury Case?
To help evaluate the need for a personal injury lawyer, see if you answer “yes” to any of the following questions:
- Did your slip & fall occur in a business, store, medical facility or government agency?
- Did you trip or slip on an object that was out of place and increased the risk of the accident?
- Were warning signs present and clearly visible near where you fell?
- Could a warning have been placed to limit the risk of your accident?
- Did insufficient lighting and/or security play a role in the accident or attack?
- If you tripped on a carpet, floor, etc. or slipped on a wet and/or loose area, was the hazardous area there long enough that the responsible party should have fixed it?
Until you are injured, you may not understand the serious injuries a slip & fall accident can cause. There are many potentially life-changing consequences of a slip and fall accident including:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Broken bones
- Temporary or permanent disability
More than a quarter of all traumatic brain injuries (28%) result from falls, even more than car accidents. A slightly smaller percentage of spinal cord injuries are caused by falls (22%), but in persons over age 65, spinal cord injuries are most often caused by falls and are often a consequence of nursing home neglect.
A Property Owner’s Responsibility
Slip and fall lawsuits are considered a category of premises liability because it is a property owner’s responsibility to ensure that his or her property is safe for all visitors. This is especially true if the owner invites you to their property for the purpose of conducting business. Property owners not only have a responsibility to quickly correct any known hazards but to be vigilant for new or emerging hazards.
If you suffered a serious personal injury due to a slip and fall that could have been prevented you may be entitled to compensation for:
- Past and future medical bills
- Lost wages and diminished earning ability
- Reimbursement for physical therapy and occupational therapy costs
- Pain, suffering and diminished quality of life
- The amount and type of compensation you may receive will depend on your individual circumstances
