What Are the Most Common Slip and Fall Injuries?

Posted on : August 13, 2018

Have you recently been hurt in a slip and fall accident?  If so, you deserve to have a consultation with an experienced slip and fall injury lawyer who you can help you to recover maximum compensation by filing a lawsuit.

There are several different common types of injuries frequently associated with slip, trip and fall accidents.  Some of the most severe injuries linked to a trip and fall are those affecting the head.  Unfortunately, according the CDC, falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injury.  A TBI could be a minor concussion that heals with rest or a critical injury that leads to mood changes, ongoing seizures, debilitating symptoms, and cognitive impairment.

According to research gathered across numerous slip and fall injury claims and emergency room data, falls account for 40% of all TBIs in the United States, and these most disproportionately affect the oldest and youngest age groups.  Other common injuries linked to slip and fall accidents include spinal cord and back problems, hip fractures, shoulder injuries, fractures, and sprains.

No matter what type of injury sustained in a slip and fall accident, if it was caused by a property manager or property owner’s accident, you deserve to have the case evaluated as a possible personal injury claim.  A personal injury claim might be the only way to recover compensation when you have been seriously hurt because a property manager or owner knew or should have known about the dangers on his or her grounds and failed to put up a warning sign or to otherwise correct the issue that led to your severe injuries.

You need a lawyer on your side to help you file a claim and recover maximum compensation with the help of an attorney.  Waiting too long to get help could block you from getting the support you need.
