Five Things To Do After a Slip and Fall Accident

There are several essential steps to take after a slip and fall accident to preserve your health and the evidence needed to strengthen your case.

  1. Go to the emergency room or arrange to see your doctor immediately. Keep records of your visits, and don’t miss any follow-up appointments.
  2. Take pictures and videos of the accident area. Be sure to include the hazard and the surrounding area. This evidence can help show what caused your injuries and that there was no warning of the danger. Documenting the scene is critical because the property owner may fix the problem after your accident.
  3. Report your injury to someone in charge. Find a property manager or other employee and ask if you can file a report. Write your own account of the accident while the details are still fresh in your mind. Include a description of what caused your fall, the surrounding area, and your injuries.
  4. Collect contact information from witnesses. Ask if they will email you details of what they saw or speak to your attorney.
  5. Contact a  Lehigh Valley personal injury lawyer at Cordisco & Saile LLC to discuss your case and determine how much your slip and fall claim may be worth.

Types of Slip and Fall Cases We Handle at Cordisco & Saile

Business and property owners are legally obligated to provide a safe environment free from hazards so that people who visit the premises don’t sustain an injury. Slip and fall accidents can happen at poorly maintained properties, including: 

  • Parking lots
  • Restaurants and bars
  • Grocery stores
  • Malls and other retail spaces
  • Construction sites
  • Hotels
  • Amusement parks
  • Apartment buildings
  • Office buildings
  • Government buildings

Property and business owners aren’t liable for unforeseen problems. However, they are responsible for maintaining their properties, warning people of hazards, and reasonably addressing potential dangers.

Some common causes of slip and fall accidents include the following:

  • Wet floors in aisles or bathrooms
  • Uneven sidewalks and walkways
  • Snowy or icy sidewalks and walkways
  • Uneven floors
  • Bunched-up or loose mats and carpeting
  • Potholes in parking lots
  • Poorly maintained stairwells
  • Unexpected steps up or down
  • Hazards such as extension cords and debris

Cordisco & Saile LLC’s slip and fall injury lawyers never back down from deep-pocketed property owners and insurance companies. If someone else’s negligence caused your injuries, you deserve a fair chance at compensation.

Common Injuries in Slip and Fall Accidents

In the United States, falls account for 800,000 hospitalizations yearly. One out of five falls causes a serious injury. Some people fear falling again, which makes them cut back on daily activities. The following injuries may result from a slip and fall on a poorly maintained property.

Broken Bones

Broken bones are painful and often require significant recovery time. Common broken bones from falls include hips, ankles, arms, and wrists. These injuries make it difficult to work, care for yourself, and engage in the activities you enjoy.

Tailbone Injuries

Falling on your backside can cause injuries such as a fractured tailbone, which can take a long time to heal. They may keep you from working and stop you from enjoying meals or time with your family because of your inability to sit without considerable pain.

Sprains and Strains

Sprains and strains may seem like minor injuries, but the effects can be long-lasting and negatively affect your home and work lives. When someone else’s negligence caused knee damage or other injuries, you deserve compensation.

Back Injuries

Back injuries can leave people out of work for long periods and trigger costly medical and rehabilitation bills. Even a slip without a fall can cause you to wrench your back and suffer long-lasting pain.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

People with traumatic brain injuries from slip and fall accidents may be eligible for substantial compensation. These injuries can cause long-term health problems and an inability to function the same way you did before your accident.

Post-Concussion Syndrome

People with mild traumatic brain injuries may develop post-concussion syndrome, which happens when symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, and problems concentrating or remembering things last longer than expected.

Open Head Injuries

People with open head injuries can experience significant pain and are at risk of infection. They may need immediate treatment to address bleeding, swelling, and skull fractures. Severe open-head injuries can result in comas and death.

Wrongful Death

If your loved one died from a slip and fall accident, you can file a wrongful death lawsuit. You can claim economic damages, such as funeral and burial expenses, and non-economic damages, such as loss of consortium. You also can file a claim for your loved one’s pain and suffering.

Partner with our Bethlehem personal injury lawyers so we can review the extent of your injuries and help you pursue compensation from negligent property owners and others.
