Coral Springs Slip and Fall Attorney
No one starts their day expecting to slip and fall while going about their daily business, yet hospital emergency rooms treat millions of slip-and-fall injuries every year. While this type of accident can happen to anyone, the elderly are particularly susceptible to serious injuries, including hip fractures and head injuries. At least 800,000 people are hospitalized for serious injuries each year due to slip-and-fall accidents.
Any fall is frightening and the resulting injuries have a negative impact on life quality either temporarily or permanently, but when a slip and fall happens on someone else’s property due to negligence on their part, it’s especially distressing. If you slipped and fell due to a property owner’s failure to take reasonable action to prevent such an accident, you may qualify for compensation for the resulting economic and non-economic damages. Our Coral Springs personal injury attorneys represent clients who’ve been injured through the negligence of another party. If you’ve been hurt through no fault of your own, you deserve compensation for your injuries.
Common Slip and Fall Injuries in Florida
Slip-and-fall accidents are a leading cause of personal injury claims in Florida and around the country. While some falls are simply embarrassing, others cause substantial injuries to more than just your dignity. Some common injuries associated with slip and fall accidents include:
- Head injuries or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), which can range from mild concussions to serious brain damage
