Think About the Elements of a Slip-And-Fall Accident

On Behalf of | May 26, 2017 | Premises Liability

We recently discussed how some people who suffer from a brain injury might opt to seek compensation from the parties who are liable for the accident. One of the accidents that might lead to brain injury is a slip-and-fall.

We understand that you might have heard plenty of jokes about slip-and-fall accidents, but the truth is that these mishaps can lead to life-changing injuries.

The effects of a slip-and-fall accident depend on how hard you land and the position in which you land. You might suffer from a spinal cord injury if you land on a concrete speed bump when you fall. You can suffer a brain injury when you fall if you hit your head or if your head moves in a violent manner. You might break a bone if you land in an odd position.

We understand that you might want to know more about the possibility of seeking compensation for your injuries. This isn’t always an easy thing to do, but we will help you from start to finish if you opt to pursue this option. This includes investigating the accident, getting your case together and working to resolve it favorably so that you can begin moving forward with your life.

Evidence used in a slip-and-fall accident should include factors that show the defendant was liable for your fall. We will also include information about the types of economic and non-economic damages you have suffered. This may include everything from the loss of enjoyment of life and lost wages to pain and suffering and medical bills.
