Common Injuries in a Slip and Fall Accident

Slip and fall accidents may sound trivial on the surface, but in reality, the resulting injuries can be nothing less than catastrophic. Often resulting in severely broken bones, neck and back injuries, and head injuries, slip and fall accidents can change the entire course of your life. Depending on the degree of your injuries, you may need years of physical therapy, medical testing and procedures, and coverage for lost wages.

Here are some of the most commonly-seen injuries after a serious slip-and-fall:

Children and the elderly are often more vulnerable to sustaining these serious injuries in a slip and fall, but even if you have a prior condition, you are entitled to pursue justice for your injuries. Under the “eggshell plaintiff” rule, a property owner must protect all visitors against clear hazards on their premises – even if those visitors have a pre-existing condition or vulnerability.

Anyone who has sustained similar injuries to the above should not hesitate to speak with a Fort Lauderdale injury attorney, to determine whether or not they have a case to file for personal injury compensation.

Proving Liability in a Slip and Fall Accident

In order to successfully file a claim and obtain recovery for your medical bills, pain, and suffering, you must first establish liability. This can only be accomplished by presenting strong evidence, including witness statements, photos of the accident site, and medical evaluations of your injuries. That means it’s critical for your legal counsel to have good investigative skills, and to perform a thorough evaluation of your case during the trial preparation phase.

Here are some of the things you will need to show in a slip and fall claim:

  • That the property owner or other relevant parties failed to remove, fix, or repair a dangerous condition on their property
  • That you never received fair warning about this hazardous condition
  • That it’s reasonable to expect that the property owner should have taken action, because the hazard could cause injuries
  • That slipping or tripping on this hazard directly caused your injuries

Slip and fall claims can be tricky to prove, because you will need to show that the defendant failed to exercise a “duty of care” towards you as the plaintiff. It’s not enough to simply claim that they knew about the hazard: It needs to be apparent that the property owner suspected it would be dangerous, but refused to exercise due diligence anyway.

This is why it’s helpful to have a Fort Lauderdale lawyer assist you in gathering evidence to prove your claim, because they know exactly what documentation you need and have handled numerous premises liability cases. By securing the right legal counsel, you will be more likely to receive a positive settlement or verdict, and get the medical care that you deserve.
