If you have experienced a slip and fall accident recently, you may be suffering from significant physical injuries, as well as dealing with the emotional toll connected with the often terrifying loss of control felt in such an accident. Slip and fall accidents often happen outside of the comfort of our home. They can occur on property where other individuals or entities are responsible for seeing to the safety of visitors. These properties can include retail areas with large parking lots and stores or other commercial premises.
The slip and fall accident is often a result of the negligence of others who may not have maintained their property appropriately; for instance, liquids or other substances may be left on the floor, ice and snow or other slippery debris may be coating the entrance to a venue, or there could be issues outside with stairs or sidewalks that property managers should be maintaining, including broken concrete or potholes.
If the area where you were injured during a slip and fall accident is considered to be in dangerous condition, you may have a strong case. Consult with an experienced injury attorney from the offices of H. Lehman Franklin, P.C. as soon as possible so that you can be compensated for the damages owed—and most likely, begin to recoup after enormous medical bills have piled up.
Serious injuries may occur from the slip and fall, including cuts and contusions, broken bones, and serious issues like a broken hip or a spinal injury. Unfortunately, brain injuries are all too common with the slip and fall accident too, and while concussions are common, these types of falls can also result in traumatic brain injuries.
A TBI can be extremely serious and is rated on several different levels, from mild to moderate to severe. There could also be issues with bruising and bleeding of the brain, causing long-term damage. If you are concerned that you or a loved one may have sustained a TBI, seek medical help immediately. Typical symptoms include loss of consciousness, a feeling of confusion, fatigue, vomiting, serious headaches, memory problems or mood changes, slurred speech, and alack of coordination.
