SLIP, TRIP, & FALL ACCIDENTS
A SIMPLE SLIP CAN MEAN A SERIOUS INJURY

Every year, more than a million people in the United States are seriously injured due to slip, trip, and fall accidents. These accidents can hurt more than a person’s pride. In fact, slip, trip, and fall accidents account for more emergency room visits than any other type of accident. Even more disturbingly, these types of accidents result in more than 16,000 deaths each year. Sometimes, seemingly minor accidents can lead to significant injuries.

Accidents can happen anytime, anywhere, and to anyone. However, many slip, trip, and fall accidents could be avoided if property owners would institute known safety measures and correct potential safety hazards. It’s important to understand that, if you’ve been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Whether your injury is minor or catastrophic, consulting a personal injury attorney will help you preserve your legal right to compensation. An experienced personal injury attorney will also protect you from further victimization from insurance companies and the legal system.

Common Injuries that result from slip, trip, and fall accidents

  • Facial injuries — lacerations, cuts, & bruises.
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Spinal cord injuries resulting in nerve damage & paralysis
  • Blunt head trauma resulting in brain damage
  • Permanent disfigurement

Our case involved a hit and run driver from out of state.  Your office kept me informed and basically make the whole process a lot easier.  I want to thank you for the time you have done on my case………..I know it is small, but to my family it is not.  I do want to thank you for all your hard work in resolving this case.
