Anytime you go onto another person’s property and you have the right and expectation to be there, you should expect a safe environment. This includes an area safe from obstacles that can cause a trip and fall incident.

At Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers, we know how serious injuries from these incidents can be. That is why we want to help. If a property owner’s negligence has caused you or a loved one harm, contact us when you need a Cleveland trip and fall injury attorney. We will work hard to secure the compensation you deserve.

You Should Expect Safety

Whenever you go somewhere, you expect that the property owners and the people who work for them will keep their premises safe. This includes ensuring that there are no hazards that can cause a trip and fall incident.

Think about the places you go: stores, banks, offices, schools, parks, courthouse, and more. At each of these locations, you do not expect hazards that could cause injuries. However, the following are common causes of trip and fall incidents:

  • Cluttered walkways (boxes, tools, brooms, etc. that are left out)
  • Wrinkled carpet
  • Uncovered cables
  • Low-lying shelving left open
  • Uneven walking surfaces (steps, thresholds)

Aside from those obstacles, obstructed views and poor lighting conditions can also contribute to trip and fall incidents.

What Can Happen?

Please take trip and fall incidents seriously. It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries in trip and fall accident victims:

  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

Even if an injury does not seem major, you should still report a trip and fall to store management and seek medical attention. In many cases, pain and other symptoms may not become apparent until hours or days after an incident takes place. By reporting an incident and seeking treatment, you are establishing a clear line of evidence of what happened and making it harder for insurance companies to dispute your injury claim.

These injuries can lead to major medical bills. If a victim is unable to work due to their injuries, they will lose income and could be placed into financial jeopardy.

If a property owner or their employee’s negligence causes someone harm, they need to be held accountable for their actions.
