Have you ever sustained an injury on someone else's property?
If you have, they are likely liable for the damages you sustained, which means they have to pay for any injury caused by them, such as a broken leg or a concussion.
Injuries suffered in slip-and-fall accidents lead to about 9 million emergency room visits yearly. In addition, slip and fall accidents are the second leading cause of unintentional death in the U.S. Many traumatic consequences come from a slip and fall injury on another person's property. Some injuries include brain injury, sprains, broken or fractured bones, spinal injuries, Bruises, cuts, thoracic injuries, back/neck injuries, paralysis, and in severe cases, death.
Slip-and-fall injuries are particularly harmful to older adults. Unfortunately, falls are also common in nursing homes, where residents frequently fall due to loss of stability and distracted nurses. Recovering from a severe injury in a slip-and-fall accident typically requires medical care and physical rehabilitation, such as surgery, stitches, or physical therapy. There are even some cases where a fall victim dies and requires a funeral which is extremely expensive and devastating for family members. A person can also become disabled, requiring around-the-clock care, which can leave various medical bills and psychological stress.
These types of injuries occur when property owners are negligent. For example, they might not have left signs for slippery floors or didn't take the appropriate precautions to ensure their property was safe.
