Aggressive Lawyers for the Seriously Injured

Do I have a Slip and Fall Claim?

If you have slipped or tripped and fallen due to a hazardous condition on someone else’s property and have been injured as a result, you may have a valid slip and fall claim. A property owner owes you a duty to keep their property reasonably safe and free from hazards. If they knew or should have known that there was a potentially harmful condition on their property, they should have warned you of the danger or fixed the unsafe condition.

You deserve to be compensated for injuries caused by someone else’s negligence. If a property owner failed to take reasonable measures to keep you safe while on their property, they should pay for your losses. Attorney Michael LoGiudice is here to hold property owner’s responsible for the injuries their negligence has caused. You should not have to suffer through the pain and pay for things like your medical care when your injuries are the fault of someone else.

What are the Most Common Slip and Fall Injuries?

Slip and falls occur because of a wide variety of hazardous property conditions. Sometimes a property owner has let things fall into disrepair, other times there are environmental hazards that the owner has failed to clean up. Some of the most common causes of slip and falls include:

  • Loose and torn carpeting
  • Uneven or cracked tiles
  • Cracked sidewalks
  • Slippery floors
  • Poor lighting
  • Unmarked steps
  • Broken railings
  • Narrow stairways
  • Debris in walkways

Depending on how you fell and the severity of the impact, you can sustain very serious and long lasting injuries as a result. Slip and fall victims have sustained:

  • Lacerations
  • Bruises
  • Scars
  • Bone fractures
  • Sprains
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

These kinds of injuries have serious implications for your health and well being. Make sure you seek medical attention as soon as possible. Comply with your treating health care professional’s follow up care instructions as well.
What Monetary Compensation Can I Recover for a Slip and Fall Accident?

While working to recover from injuries which may have resulted from your slip and fall, you may feel incredibly overwhelmed as the medical expenses pile up. You may be missing work and, therefore, missing paychecks. You may need continual care and think about how you are going to pay for medical expenses in the future. A successful slip and fall claim can help you recover monetary compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Cost of future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning ability
  • Pain and suffering
