SERIOUS INJURIES FROM SLIP & FALL ACCIDENTS
It is important to see a medical professional after being in a slip and fall injury to get a full understanding of your injuries. If you do not see a doctor soon after your accident, then the defense will try to use the gap in your medical records as “evidence” that your accident either didn’t happen or it didn’t cause your reported injuries. Insurance companies also like to argue that slip and fall accidents aren’t serious enough to cause severe injuries, even though this is simply not true.
People who slip or trip and fall might suffer:
- Broken hips, femurs, and arms
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Scarring or disfigurements
Elders are especially susceptible to suffering severe injuries in a slip and fall accident due to their age. Slip and fall accidents in nursing homes are leading causes of catastrophic injuries and deaths suffered by the elderly population. This statistic is even more frustrating when considering that nursing homes should have staff members available to prevent such accidents from ever happening.
WHAT’S THE VALUE OF YOUR SLIP & FALL CLAIM?

- Past and future medical costs
