Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are some of the most misunderstood types of personal injury. For many of those who suffer in such incidents, they find that there is a stigma around any discussion of culpability, and that the finger of blame very often gets pointed back at the person injured in the slip and fall. Fortunately, we understand that many of these sorts of cases are not, in fact, the fault of the victim, and that there is another person or persons who deserve to shoulder the blame due to their negligence.

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere, but there are a few places where they are more common. These places include:

  • Apartment complexes
  • Shopping centers
  • Public pools
  • Grocery stores and supermarkets

The types of injuries that can result from a slip and fall incident most often include:

  • Head and neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Hip injuries

While the initial damage is often quickly recognized, it is not uncommon for there to be lingering effects that only start to manifest themselves in the following days, weeks, and months after the slip and fall takes place. All of this can quickly take a staggering toll on personal finances due to the combined strains medical bills and wage loss.
