Recovering Money for Your Slip and Fall
One minute you’re on your feet and the next minute you’re on the ground. In the blink of an eye, you can be injured from a slip and fall accident. Slipping and falling is almost always embarrassing, but it can also be devastating. Whether the slip and fall occurs on the job or out in public, twenty percent of accidents result in a severe injury, including bone breaks, back injuries, and even traumatic brain injury.
There are myriad ways to experience a slip and fall. Changes in sidewalk elevation, slippery walkways, cluttered work areas, missing floor tiles, and unmarked steps are just a few. When you experience a slip and fall, it’s crucial to visit a doctor right away – even if you don’t think you’ve been hurt. Injuries can take a few days or weeks to surface, and it’s important to get documentation as soon as possible after the accident.
Many people are hesitant to pursue a slip and fall personal injury claim against a neighbor, employer, or family member. Keep in mind that virtually all property owners have insurance policies that cover slip and fall injuries.
