Slip & Fall Accidents: 6 Things To Know

Over one million Americans suffer injuries in fall-related accidents each year.


To protect yourself and the ones you love, you should know the who, what, where, when, why, and how of slips, trips, and falls.


Unfortunately, slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents can happen to anyone at any time.


Trips, slips, and falls are often caused by factors such as…


Broken or cracked sidewalks, uneven stairs…


Poor lighting, missing handrails…


And other unsafe conditions.


Whether you’re at home or visiting a neighbor, of if you’re walking your dog or dropping your children at school, slip and falls can and do happen everywhere.


As with most personal injury claims, the best course of action is immediate action.


By not acting quickly, you may soon be faced with a number of avoidable consequences, including…


Unnecessary financial pains…


And the statute of limitations to file a claim expiring…


As a result, your window to commence an action and recover damages may close forever.


In order to recover damages for a slip and fall, it must be proved that the at-fault party was or should have been aware of the hazard or defect…


And that a reasonable amount of time passed in which it could have been fixed…


If, however, the situation was not made safe and an injury was suffered as a result…


Then the at-fault party will likely be held liable for damages caused.


Having an experienced personal injury attorney by your side is the most effective way to ensure you receive the money and benefits you are entitled to.


That way, you can focus on what’s most important: your loved ones and your health.
