Common Injuries: Why Slip and Fall Accidents are Dangerous
Most injuries caused by slipping and falling on someone else's property are minor. But even seemingly small injuries can incur bills and cost time you weren't planning for. No injury is too small to seek compensation for the irresponsibility of the owner of the property.
The most common types of slip and fall injuries are cuts, scrapes, bruises and the occasional sprained ankle or broken bone. However, more serious accidents can occur that may make surgeries and physical therapy necessary. In extreme cases, a slip and fall can even result in death.
Some examples of clients we have helped with slip and falls include:
- A client who badly fractured her ankle after slipping down stairs covered in snow. Her apartment complex was proved negligent for not clearing the stairs.
- A client who fell down some badly lit stairs in a local bar. Many people had fallen previously on these stairs and management knew they were a problem.
- A client injured her back and ankle after tripping over an unmarked drain at a vehicle service center.
