Common causes of slip & fall accidents

There are many causes of slip and fall accidents, which include:

  • Wet floors
  • Spills
  • Uneven walkways
  • Defective stairs
  • Loose floorboards
  • Exposed wiring and other tripping hazards

In these matters, it is essential that you work with an attorney who can help you take legal action.

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries

After a slip and fall accident

After a slip and fall accident, it is imperative to report the incident and seek medical attention as soon as possible. These steps could start a paper trail of evidence to strengthen your claim and increase your chances of recovering the fair and just compensation you deserve. Even if you do not believe you are severely injured, seeing a doctor is a good idea. Not all injuries immediately present symptoms, which means your condition could worsen suddenly.
