Far Rockaway Slip and Fall Lawyers
Most people never see their slip and fall accident coming. No matter how carefully we walk, many dangerous hazards are simply unavoidable. This is true on public sidewalks, at the home of an acquaintance, or the aisles of a grocery store. Yet, when these falls happen, the resulting injuries can have devastating and even permanent consequences. Our team of Far Rockaway slip and fall lawyers can advise you whether or not you might have a claim for compensation.
Not all falls will result in a monetary settlement. With the help of your slip and fall attorney, you must first establish that the fall occurred due to the property owner’s failure to address a dangerous hazard in a reasonable amount of time. Let Douglas & London evaluate your claim and advise you of your chances of recovering compensation for your injuries.
Common slip and fall injuries
Many different kinds of injuries can result from these accidents. They have the potential to be significant even if the fall did not occur from a great height. Landing in an awkward manner– especially on your head or neck– could result in a permanent disability and extensive medical bills. Some common examples of slip and fall injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries, including concussions
- Cuts and bruises
- Internal bleeding
- Broken bones
- Neck injuries
- Tendon and ligament damage
You will need more than evidence of an injury to recover compensation from the owner of the property. You will also need to demonstrate that the hazard that caused your injury was not obvious to you and that the property owner had time to address it but failed to do so. Your slip and fall lawyer can assist you in holding the property owner accountable for their negligence.
