Slip and fall accidents are never something to be overlooked as the resulting injuries may not show up immediately. Very often a person has a fall, gets up and says “oh I just fell on my butt, I’ll be fine” only to find later that they had injured their neck, back, brain or incurred broken bones and other injuries. An injured person can also experience pain and suffering and other emotional turmoil such as depression. Slip and fall accidents happen to all people, from young children to the elderly. Every year there are over 15,000 slip and fall fatalities in the United States.
Slip and fall accidents can have numerous causes, almost none of which are the fault of the injured person. Wet floors, poor maintenance, bad signage, spills or bad wax on a floor on a floor or failure to remove snow and ice are just a small number of what may cause a person to have injuries. Injuries from a slip and fall can often have long lasting impact on not just your health. You ability to work, earn a living and support your family can also be negatively affected.
If you have had a slip and fall you need an attorney who will find out who is responsible for your injuries and seek to get you the financial compensation that you deserve.
