Everyone slips and falls at some point in their lives, but there are times that these accidents are much worse than others. One element that makes a slip and fall accident more serious than some is when a person is not aware that a surface is hazardous. This means they have absolutely no warning that the surface is dangerous, producing the opportunity for very serious injuries.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident due to no fault of your own, you may be able to hold the responsible party accountable for your injuries by seeking monetary compensation. Your Mankato personal injury lawyer can build a strong case for you that is designed to achieve the result that you need.
Experienced With All types Of Slip And Fall Injuries
Sometimes a slip and fall injury may result in a few bruises that go away in a week or two. Other times, the injuries can be much more serious, especially those that occur on concrete, stairs, or uneven surfaces. The most common types of injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Severe bruising
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Head injuries
- Sprains and strains
The elderly and those with physical disabilities are especially vulnerable to the injuries that result from slip and falls. For instance, a broken hip is the most common fall injury for elderly individuals. Broken hips can lead to other complications. There have been times where a broken hip has led to an elderly individual acquiring an illness that has led to their death. In this case, the family may have a claim against the individual(s) responsible for the slip and fall accident.
Ensuring The Best Medical Treatment
One of the things that your Southern Minnesota personal injury lawyer will stress to you is to ensure you receive the best possible medical treatment immediately. The better your medical treatment, the more likely you are to recover to a point where you have a good quality of life. The compensation that will be sought by your attorney will be enough to cover your current and future medical expenses, lost wages missed from work, pain and suffering, and other applicable expenses.
