Slip and Fall accidents are the leading cause for emergency room visits in the United States for all age groups with the exception of 16 – 25 year old males according to the United States Center for Disease Control. Whether you slip and fall in a store like Walmart or Target or inside of an office building or hospital you may have a case. Property and business owners have to keep their walking surfaces free and clear of trip, slip, and fall hazards. That is the law plain and simple. When a business owner or a property owner fails to keep walking surfaces within or around their business safe for the general public falls and injuries do occur. I have handled hundreds of slip and fall accidents. Each case presents a unique challenge, however slip and fall accidents lead to serious life altering injuries. A person may slip and fall and suffer from back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, head pain, wrist pain, knee pain, or ankle pain. Sometimes people injure multiple body parts in a slip and fall accident. Often times when a slip and fall occurs in a store or a supermarket the company may offer the injured party a gift card or a coupon. Do not simply sign away your rights in exchange for a gift card. Handling these cases I have learned that many businesses are aware of the danger their walking services present to the public. Paying slip and fall claims has become the cost of doing business for many retail stores and supermarkets. Apparently it is less expensive for these companies to pay claims then it is to make their stores safer. Call me, tell me what happened and let me know about your accident and your injuries.
