A person can slip and fall anywhere, even in their own home. Most slip and fall accidents are minor and do not cause severe injuries. However, there are many slip and fall accidents that are not only catastrophic, but are also the result of the negligence of another person or company. These accidents can be prevented but because someone wasn’t paying attention or failed to keep an area safe from hazards, you or a loved one may have sustained critical slip and fall injuries.
Common slip and fall injuries can include:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Brain injuries
- Cuts, lacerations and bruises
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
At the Law Firm Of Dykeman & Rosenthal, we are familiar with slip and fall accidents and how they can be caused by the negligence of another individual or a company. Supermarkets fail to clean up spills in a timely fashion, department stores do not properly salt their sidewalks when it is icy and the city does not perform repairs on roads, sidewalks or steps when the concrete breaks and causes a hazard. You should not be held responsible for your own medical costs if your slip and fall accident was caused by another person’s negligence.
We will fight for your right to receive the maximum amount of financial restitution available in your case so you do not have to pay for your medical care out of pocket. Call us today to schedule an appointment for a consultation to discuss your case. We are available to help you. (859) 745-1700.
