Most Common Slip and Fall Injuries: Did This Happen to You?

When many people think of a slip, trip, or fall, they imagine scraped knees and bruises. However, a slip and fall accident can cause much more serious injuries than you might expect. These injuries can impact your daily life and may even be life-threatening in some cases.

Below, we’ve listed some of the most common slip and fall injuries. If you’ve suffered one of these or ANY injury in a fall caused by a property owner’s carelessness, you have rights and may be entitled to compensation.

Why Do Slip and Fall Accidents Happen?

While slip and fall accidents can happen for many reasons that are out of a property owner’s control, many occur because the owner failed to make a necessary repair or adequately address a hazard.

When a property owner knew or should have known about a dangerous condition that could pose a threat to people’s safety and failed to fix or warn visitors, they may be held liable for any accidents that occur as a result of their carelessness.

Here are some of the most common causes of slip and fall accidents:

  • Potholes in parking lots
  • Torn carpeting
  • Recently mopped or waxed floors
  • Loose mats
  • Defective sidewalks
  • Faulty staircases
  • Moisture collection in flooring
  • Cluttered floors
  • Loose floorboards

Slip and Fall FAQs

Immediately after a slip and fall, it’s important to act fast. First and foremost, seek medical treatment even if you believe your injuries to be minor. It’s also vital to report your accident to the owner or supervisor of the property where your accident took place. Be sure to request a copy of any accident report filed and document as much as possible about the incident, including the time, date, eyewitness accounts, and the conditions that led to your fall. Then, call our Mobile, Alabama, slip and fall lawyers at Long & Long so we can begin reviewing all the details of your case.

Identifying the at-fault party in a premises liability case can be tricky, as there are several factors you must be able to demonstrate in order to prove the property owner was at fault. After all, falling on someone else’s property doesn’t automatically mean the owner is responsible.

You must be able to demonstrate that the fall was caused by factors the property owner should have known about and resolved or took steps to warn visitors. Making this argument to insurance adjusters who are trained in escaping liability can be easier said than done. That’s why having our team of experienced negotiators who know the law on your side will be to your benefit!

A slip and fall accident can even happen when you’re visiting a friend’s property. In this case, it’s important to keep in mind that you don’t have to sue your friend in order to get the compensation you deserve. Any legal action you take will be aimed toward an insurance company rather than the individual, so don’t let the fact that your accident happened on a friend’s property keep you from pursuing the compensation you need and deserve for your injuries.

The value of each case varies and is dependent on many different factors. Generally, the amount you may be entitled to is determined by the severity of your injuries and the financial losses you’ve suffered as a result of the accident, such as medical bills and lost wages. For a more accurate estimate of how much your case is worth, contact our office for a free case review today. The property owner’s insurance company will likely try to pay you much less than your case is actually worth, so it’s important to speak with an experienced slip and fall attorney who can help you demand the true value of your case.

Quite simply, a Mobile, Alabama, slip and fall lawyer is your best chance to secure maximum compensation for your injuries. The defendant will likely have attorneys who work for their insurance company, so it’s best for you to contact our team for the legal help you need.

In Alabama, the statute of limitations on personal injury claims is two years from the date of your accident. If you file your lawsuit even a day after that, your claim may be refused simply because you took too long. That’s why it’s vital that you contact our team at Long & Long to file your lawsuit as early as possible.

Most likely, no. In fact, most personal injury claims never have to see the inside of a courtroom. Instead, with help from a lawyer, claim holders can reach satisfactory settlement agreements with insurance companies during pre-trial mediations. However, some cases cannot settle for enough without going to court. It’s always best to contact a Mobile, Alabama, slip and fall lawyer about if you fear your case may go to court.
