Although a slip and fall accident may not seem very serious, it may actually cause painful and debilitating injuries or even death. Common injuries associated with slip and fall and trip and fall accidents include: broken hips, broken wrists and arms, sprains, fractures, spinal cord injuries, neck injuries and head and brain injuries. A severe slip and fall may result in the victim hitting his or her head violently against the ground, and this may lead to a concussion or possibly a coma.
Injured in a Tampa Slip and Fall Accident?
Were you injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property? This may mean that you have grounds for a premise liability claim, which can be filed against a property owner for negligence in keeping his or her property grounds safe from hazardous conditions. A Tampa slip and fall attorney at the Law Offices of Keith Ligori can review the circumstances of your accident to determine whether you may be entitled to file a claim and recover financial damages for your injuries. It’s important to contact a lawyer immediately, as the burden of proof can sometimes be on you. A slip and fall accident may occur because of a wet floor, uneven walkway, poor lighting, standing water, ice, object in the walkway or freshly waxed floor. Property owners have an obligation to fix hazardous conditions that exist on their property or post a warning sign if it cannot be addressed immediately. Their failure to do so can result in serious injury, and slip and fall victims have the right to seek financial compensation for what they have endured.
