A slip and fall accident can sometimes result in nothing more than a bruised ego. However, in all too many cases, slip and fall accidents can result in severe injuries and even fatal injuries. Broken bones, lacerations, brain injury and spinal cord injury are not uncommon outcomes when a person slips and falls. In many cases, slip and fall injuries could have been prevented but for someone else’s negligence. At the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., we believe those negligent parties should be held accountable for the harm they caused. If you slipped and fell and became injured and want to know more about taking legal action against the liable party, contact us today to discuss your case.
Slip and fall accidents can cause serious injury
Although slapstick comedy has made slipping and falling into a go-to topic for jokesters, slip and fall accidents are nothing to chuckle about—major injuries and even fatal injuries can result from these accidents. Traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and injury to the spinal column are common outcomes for people who have a slip and fall accident, and according to data made available by the National Safety Council, falls are the leading cause of death in senior citizens in the United States.
Slip and fall injuries are common
Data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that more than 1 million people are injured in slip and fall or trip and fall accidents each year in the US, and more than 19,000 people are killed each year due to unintentional falls annually nationwide. These injuries are preventable, but in too many cases, negligent parties fail to take preventative measures and people going about their daily lives find themselves becoming accident victims through no fault of their own.
What to do after experiencing a slip and fall accident
Although treating injuries is the first priority after experiencing any injury, after your medical condition is stabilized it is important to consider taking legal action by filing a lawsuit in civil court. Retain copies of any medical bills related to injury treatment and any other documentation you can gather related to your accident and injuries, then contact a personal injury attorney. You and your attorney can review your documentation and build a legal case for the civil courts.
