Slip and Fall Injury Attorney

You may think that slipping and falling is embarrassing, but the repercussions are no joke. Slip and fall injuries are among the leading causes of unintentional deaths in the US. Nearly 8.9 million people check into emergency rooms every year to receive treatment from slip and fall injuries, many of them serious and life-altering. The most common slip and fall injuries are the following:

  • Traumatic brain injuries and concussions
  • Whether or not the homeowner or business owner should have known about the hazard
  • Fractures (especially hip fractures in the elderly)
  • Dislocated shoulders
  • Sprained/strained muscles and torn tendons or ligaments

If you have experienced any of the above injuries somewhere that was not your home or place of residence, you may have grounds for a premises liability claim. Premises liability claims are often the result of negligence. Negligence can be determined by answering these questions:

  • What kind of hazard was it that caused the injury?
  • How long had the hazard existed?
  • Whether or not the homeowner or business owner knew of the hazard and attempted to fix it
  • Whether or not the homeowner or business owner should have known about the hazard

If negligence based on these factors is proven, you may be entitled to receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, disability, pain and suffering, or loss of normal life.


First, it is most important that you seek treatment for your injuries. Knowing the severity of your injuries from a medical professional is crucial in proving your claim.
