Slip & Falls
Get Legal Help Right Away for Slip & Fall Injuries
While people don’t typically worry about walking down a flight of stairs or down a dimly-lit hallway, the risk of slip-and-falls is very real. You can sustain painful and debilitating injuries from falling, and it may be due to the negligence of a property owner. Taps & Associates is a reputable law firm whose attorneys have represented a multitude of clients with slip-and-fall cases. If your injuries are the result of an at-fault party’s negligence or malicious intent, you may be entitled to fair compensation.
Common Types of Injuries from Falling
There are many ways a slip-and-fall incident can injure you, and the severity can range from a few scrapes to paralysis or death. Taps & Associates is well-versed in the types of injuries our clients have suffered, and some of the most common include the following:
Falling on any surface can damage your skin at various levels of severity, especially on hard surfaces or those with sharp edges or corners. You can suffer mild injuries like cuts and scrapes, or you may sustain significant injuries like chemical burns and tears, which can result in longer recovery and permanent scarring.
The impact of a hard surface on your head can lead to various levels of injury, from a mild concussion and bruising to traumatic brain damage. Injuries to the brain can be as severe as permanent disability or even death.
The impact of concrete, metal, and other surfaces on your body can fracture your bones, including your wrist, shoulder, ankle, hips, and other parts. A fracture can be both painful and debilitating, and it can affect your work and daily life.
Soft Tissue Injuries
These types of injuries include sprained wrists, muscle sprains, and torn ligaments. While they don’t seem severe, these injuries can be painful and affect your mobility. Suffering a soft tissue injury might even prevent you from performing your job duties, which can lead to lost wages.
Spinal Cord injuries
The spinal cord is a compact channel of nerves that connects your brain with the rest of your body. Damage to the spinal cord can result in severe medical issues, including chronic pain, loss of range of motion, and even partial or full paralysis. The pain and damage of a spinal cord injury may affect your ability to perform your job duties and daily tasks.
