Injured In a Slip and Fall Accident?

By Law Offices of Freedman & Freedman  Oct. 25, 2010 11:15a

Slip and fall accidents can happen almost anywhere and at anytime. When a person is most vulnerable they can suddenly find themselves slipping on a slick surface without warning and falling to the ground. The elderly, people already injured, children and even healthy adults can suffer excruciating pain if uneven sidewalks, slippery floors, badly lit stairs and walkways or other surfaces, such as those affected by weather, catch them off guard and cause them to fall. Common injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents range from minor but painful to life altering or fatal such as:

  • Lacerations and contusions
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Concussions and brain injuries
  • Burns
  • Death

Slip and fall accidents are often caused by negligence of property owners who are required to maintain a safe environment, including warning others of hazardous conditions. In the event that a victim suffers an injury, they are strongly advised to seek legal counsel from a Detroit slip and fall attorney who can ensure their rights are protected. Due to the unique circumstances of each slip and fall accident it can be difficult to make insurance claims without appropriate information to back up a claim. Insurance companies often make it difficult on slip and fall victims, so it is important to understand all of the legal facts related to each individual case before settlements are even considered.
