Slip and Fall Accidents
Everyday people suffer injuries from slips, and falls. Sometimes these accidents result in serious injury. If you have been injured in a slip or fall accident as a result of a dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property, you may be able to file a lawsuit to recover the costs of your medical bills and other expenses, plus damages for pain and suffering.
The causes for a person to slip and fall in the indoors include:
- wet floor
- torn carpeting
- uneven or damaged flooring
- worn steps and loose stair treads
- poor lighting
- narrow stairs
- sudden movements or jerks in escalators.
The causes for a person to slip and fall in the outdoors include:
- ice or snow outside a building
- inadequate outdoor lighting
- parking lots
- open holes and ditches.
Serious injuries can arise from slip and fall accidents including:
- broken bones
- torn ligaments
- brain injuries
- spinal cord injuries
- neck or joint pain
- nerve damage.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you should notify the property owner or manager of the fact that you fell and were injured on the property and provide the relevant information for the incident report. Make sure you keep a copy of the incident report and any other paperwork you receive related to your injury. You should also keep all written legal documents, such as police reports, medical receipts and bills, wage stumps, and other documents that can be used as evidence.
You should also photograph the place where you fell and discuss with legal counsel about immediately obtaining a copy of any video that would show the fall. Many stores have video cameras of the activities that occur on the premises. Thus, it is important to move quickly on preserving the video.
