Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents are one of the most frequent causes for the filing of personal injury lawsuits. As these incidents typically occur due to the negligence of a property owner or a designated agent responsible for the condition of a property, these claims fall under the umbrella of premises liability law. The injuries produced by a slip or trip and fall can be caused by either the motion of slipping or the impact of falling onto the surface or into other nearby objects.
Slip and fall accidents often occur when someone fails to uphold his or her duties to maintain a safe walking area. If you or someone you love suffered harm in a slip and fall accident, contact the Louisville personal injury lawyers of Sampson Law Firm, at 502-584-5050 today.
Injuries from Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents may occur when someone fails to clean up a spill on the floor, fails to glue down a loose piece of carpeting, or fails to maintain a rickety set of stairs. Individuals who fall may suffer the following injuries:
- Head and brain injuries
- Pulled ligaments
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Sprained or dislocated joints
Slip and fall injuries are painful and may take weeks or months to recover from. In cases involving a fall from elevation, the potential severity of injuries escalates dramatically and the effects might prove to be fatal. As the victim of a property owner’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help you address your resulting medical needs and other damages. An attorney may be able to help you pursue this compensation.
