Slip and Fall Injury Attorneys
Spilled liquids or tracked-in ice and snow will create slipping hazards in retail stores, restaurants, offices and other public places. Hazardous conditions should be cleaned up immediately, but if they cannot be taken care of in a timely manner, warning signs should be posted as soon as possible. Failure to warn people is negligence and will lead to unnecessary injury.
In the United States, slip and fall accidents account for about one million emergency room visits each year. Falls can cause several different severe injuries, from brain damage to hip fractures.
In some cases, these falls can be fatal. These risks are especially high for individuals aged 65 and older. In fact, for people aged 65-84 years, falls are the second leading cause of injury-related death.
Even if a slip and fall accident doesn’t result in death, the costs of the emergency room visit, treatments, surgeries, and time off from work can add up very quickly. If you or a loved one has been injured from a slip and fall accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
