Slip and fall accidents happen frequently, and most of them are minor and the victim can get up, brush themselves off and go on about their day. However, some slip and fall accidents are more serious and end in the catastrophic injury or even the wrongful death of the victim. Elderly individuals are much more at risk for injuries and death in a slip and fall accident, although anyone who experiences a slip and fall can be significantly injured as a result.
Common places that slip & fall accidents can occur include:
– Public swimming pools
– Supermarkets (spilled liquids or wet floors)
– Department stores
– Shopping malls
– Gas stations
– Icy sidewalks outside of businesses
– Parking lots
– Parking garages
If you or someone you love have been involved in a slip and fall accident, the first thing you need to do after seeking prompt medical treatment for your injuries is to contact a personal injury attorney. You can be sure that the owner of the property on which your accident occurred will already have their attorneys looking for ways to avoid being blamed for the accident, or to prove that you were at fault. You need someone you can trust on your side, who will advocate for your rights against company attorneys and insurance companies.
