The Truth about Slip and Fall Accidents

At some point of anyone’s life, they have slipped or fallen. At times, a simple slip might have little to no injury, but there are instances where you or a family member might have slipped to the point of injuring yourself.  Aaron Crane of Cantor Crane, an experienced car accident attorney and personal injury lawyer in Phoenix, AZ has seen many times of people that have happened to slip an fall an injure themselves.

Over 1 million people experience injuries each year from slips and falls.

While it might not seem evident at first, slip and fall accidents can actually be more serious than they seem on the surface. Serious injuries do not always have to be evident right out of the gate, as they could easily sneak up on you. While there are a high number of serious injuries, there’s also over 17,000 deaths annually from these same types of accidents.

Let’s take a quick look at some of the most common injuries seen in slip and fall seen among those seeking the help of a personal injury attorney Phoenix.

Bumps/Bruises

This is one of the most common injury that occurs during a slip and fall accident. While they are not usually serious, they can cause quite a bit of pain. It’s this effect that has the possibility of changing the life of the person involved in the accident as they have to be careful about the way they go about things and what they can comfortably do.

Broken Bones

Broken bones could end up leaving one in pain for an extended period of time after it heals. It can also take months to fully recuperate from the slip and fall accident when broken bones are involved. This is why it’s critical to seek out legal consultation to ensure that you have all of your bases covered.

Concussions/Head Injuries

This is one of the most serious injuries that one can get from a slip and fall accident. If you hit your head, there could be underlying problems that come with it. This can include severe headaches, feeling tired, getting dizzy, or nausea. Hitting your head is definitely not something that you want to take lightly as it could have long-term effects if left untreated.

What should one do if they’re involved in a slip and fall accident?

The first thing that you should do is seek medical attention. There’s no substitute for having a professional take a look at your injuries and determine their extent. It’s always best to find out when it happens rather than later down the road when it’s too late.

After you seek medical attention, you should schedule a consultation with an experienced personal injury attorney in Phoenix to find out what legal steps can be taken. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills as well as any other losses that incurred due to the injuries.  Contact Cantor Crane, at (602) 254-2701 for a free initial consultation.
