When you go onto someone else’s property, you should not have to worry about getting injured. You certainly should not have to be on the lookout for spills or wet floors. That is not your job. That is the job of the people who work there.
Unfortunately, we know that slip and fall incidents happen all the time, and they can cause major injuries.
Wait, you mean that a slip and fall can result in serious harm?
Yes, that is exactly what we mean. The Centers for Disease Control tells us that over 800,000 people are hospitalized annually due to falls. Some common injuries we see in these incidents include:
Any time someone is involved in a slip and fall incident, they need to seek medical treatment immediately. Even if a victim does not think they are seriously hurt, they need to let a doctor check them out because the effects of some injuries are not felt until hours or days after an incident takes place. Report the incident to store employees and management and document the scene with photographs.
The average cost of a fall injury is $30,000. Who is going to be on the line for those medical bills? What if a slip and fall injury victim are unable to work while they recover?
All too often, these incidents occur because property owners and employees do not properly clean up leaks or spills. Other times, they mop a floor and neglect to put up a ‘wet floor’ sign. We also know that loose floorboards and carpeting are major caused by slip and fall incidents.
If you or someone you love has been injured due to the negligence of a property owner of the people who work for them, you need to seek legal assistance now. At Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers, we will get to work immediately on investigating what happened so we can pursue the compensation you deserve. This can include:
