Slip and fall injuries are the most common cause for emergency room visits in the United States. The National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) claims that more than eight-million people are treated for slip and fall injuries in emergency rooms every year. If you’ve been injured in an accident and believe that it was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another party then a Henderson slip and fall lawyer from Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys help you get compensation.
Injury victims may also be entitled monetary compensation for the following:
- Medical bills
- Physical therapy and other ongoing treatment
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Emotional trauma
- Everyday living expenses
Slip and Fall Accident Causes
Contrary to what many people think, it is the responsibility of the property owner, not the visitor or customer, to ensure certain hazards are not present. Victims are also allowed to take legal action against both private citizens and companies if they fall on their property.
In the vast majority of slip and fall cases, the Henderson slip and fall lawyer for the victim will attempt to prove the injuries of their clients were caused by the negligence of another person or party. Our attorneys have successful represented victims that were injured due to:
- Wet surfaces caused by leaks or spills
- Inadequate lighting that limits visibility
- Obstructions on paths and walkways
- Poorly maintained carpet, floors, or stairs
- Malfunctioning or poorly maintained escalators or moving walkways
Painful and Expensive Injuries
Slips and falls can be incredibly painful to victims, and leave lasting health conditions, especially when the victim is elderly or infirm. Injuries can also be more serious if a person falls on a hard surface such as concrete or metal.
Less serious injuries such as sprains, fractured bones, and lacerations are common, but individuals can sustain the following serious injuries as well:
- Spinal cord damage
- Head and neck trauma
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Permanent nerve damage
The injuries listed above can be astronomically expensive to treat, and those who suffer from them often need medical care for the rest of their lives. Insurance companies will try to limit settlements or deny compensation entirely. This is why it’s important for anyone who falls on the property of another individual should immediately contact an experienced Henderson slip and fall lawyer at once.
