Slip & Fall AccidentOne of the troubling things about slip, trip, and fall accidents is they are largely preventable. If property owners took reasonable measures to keep their premises free from the hazards that cause these accidents, they could prevent countless injuries. It is a matter of properly inspecting, maintaining, and repairing property grounds and placing warning signs if a hazard is present and has not yet been remedied. If landowners are negligent in maintaining property grounds and slip and falls occur, victims may be able to hold them liable.  The Shirvanian Law Firm has handles a multitude of Slip & Fall accident cases and has the necessary expertise to get you the proper settlement for your case.  We can aggressively pursue cases involving stairway accidents, escalator accidents, wet floors, dangerous sidewalks, poorly lit walkways, and more.   Call us today for a Free, No-Obligation consultation and talk to an attorney right away!  Call (818) 835-5396 or (877) 809-4223 now.

Common Causes of Slip-and-Fall Accidents

Slip-and-fall accidents can occur for many reasons, especially in today’s world where people are distracted by looking at their smart phones. With a little inattention, a fall can easily be caused by:

  • Cluttered floors
  • Loose floorboards
  • Defective or damaged sidewalks
  • Parking lot potholes
  • Poorly constructed staircases
  • Torn or frayed carpeting
  • Recently mopped or waxed floors
  • Spills on floors/slippery floors

Common Injuries in a Slip and Fall Accident

It’s quite common to suffer a few scrapes and bruises if you take a tumble.  There is a difference between a stumble and what courts consider slip-and-fall cases.  Your life could be moderately impacted if you suffer:

  • A sprained ankle
  • Dislocation
  • Dental injuries
  • Serious cuts
  • A broken finger or bone (5% of falls result in fracture)

A slip-and-fall accident may cause you to spend more time focusing on your injury instead of your family and job. You could also face significant medical bills and lost wages as you recuperate.

Severe Injuries in a Slip-and-Fall Accident

In addition to the injuries mentioned above, falling could cause:

  • Back injuries
  • Concussions
  • Fractured bones
  • Brain trauma
  • Neck injuries
  • Organ rupture
  • Internal bleeding
  • Herniated discs
  • Facial injuries
  • Inflamed tendons
  • Torn ligaments
  • Hip fractures

You should definitely contact The Shirvanian Law Firm if you have suffered a severe injury in a slip-and-fall accident.

Compensation for Fall Injuries

If you are injured due to an unsafe condition, the owner of the property where the accident occurred can be held liable for such damages as:

  • Current medical bills
  • Future medical bills resulting from your injury (reconstructive surgeries, plastic surgery, etc.)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Costs of physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Permanent injury or disability
  • Household and vehicle modifications (wheelchair ramps, hospital beds, etc.)
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of career or earning capacity
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Mental anguish and emotional duress
  • Hedonic damages for loss of joy of life
  • Punitive damages

To have a successful premises liability claim, it is crucial you hire the right attorney for the job.  The Shirvanian Law Firm has handled countless Slip & Fall cases and has the necessary experience and know-how to get the job done right for you as well.  Don’t deal, call us today for a Free, No-Obligation consultation at (818) 835-5396 or (877) 809-4223 and speak to an attorney today!
