Continuing from Slip and Fall Accidents and Lawsuits (Part 1), here is some additional information regarding slip and fall accidents. While Part 1 of this blog focused on some of the causes of slip and fall accidents, here in Part 2, we will focus on specific types of slip and fall injuries, as well as when those who have suffered these injuries should meet with a lawyer to discuss their eligibility for compensation.
Slip and Fall Injuries
When a slip and fall accident occurs, some of the most common injuries that could be sustained include (but are not limited to):
- Cuts and bruises
- Broken bones (in fact, this is the most common slip and fall injury people sustain, with about 5 percent of all fall injuries involving bone fractures)
- Head injuries
- Brain injuries (including those ranging from mild traumatic brain injuries, like concussions, to moderate or severe traumatic brain injuries)
- Back or spinal cord injuries.
Individuals who sustain any of these slip and fall injuries should:
- Seek immediate medical attention to prevent further health complications.
- Consult with an experienced slip and fall lawyer, once their health has stabilized, to learn more about their legal rights and options.
