Slip and Falls Can Cause Serious Harm
Slipping and falling down can injure any part of your body. Unfortunately, some serious and potentially life-changing injuries are common in slip and fall accidents. Some of the common injuries that occur as a result of slips and trips include:
- Bone fractures
- Strains and sprains
- Soft tissue injury
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord damage
- Cuts and lacerations
These injuries can necessitate that you undergo expensive medical care and, in some cases, you may require treatment for life. The injuries can also result in lost income and significant pain. In the event that the fall injuries are fatal, surviving family members can be left with funeral expenses as well as coping with lost companionship and the loss of the financial contributions the deceased was making. If the property owner or renter was to blame for the slip and fall, the owner/occupier is responsible for covering all of these losses. A Port St. Lucie slip and fall accident lawyer can help injured victims or surviving family members to pursue a claim for compensation.
When Can Injured Victims Make a Slip and Fall Claim?
Injured victims can make a slip and fall claim against anyone who was in direct control of a property and responsible for maintaining it and who failed in the obligation to keep the property safe. Different property owners/occupiers have different obligations to the public depending on what the property was used for. Store owners and those who invite people to the property to do business, for example, must inspect the premises for hazards and then must either correct the risky conditions or warn guests about them. While homeowners who invite guests in for casual reasons also have to correct or warn about hazards, they just have to let people know about the risks that the homeowner is or should be aware of. There’s no inspection requirement.
A Port St. Lucie slip and fall accident lawyer can help you to assess what the property owner’s obligation was to you and can help you to prove they were negligent in fulfilling the obligation and thus are responsible for injuries.
