TRIP AND FALL ATTORNEY
Like slip and falls, trip and falls are some of the most common non-car crash injury claims. These events are unexpected and can result in significant injuries, medical bills and time lost from work.
The frustration of growing medical bills and loss of income is compounded by serious injury which may leave you in constant pain or in need of surgery to fix.
When an injury is due to a trip and fall, it is important to contact a lawyer experienced in trip and falls. An investigation needs to begin before evidence disappears.
Trip and falls can happen for a variety of reasons. One of the most common reasons is root overgrowth. Other common reasons include:
- Cracked sidewalk or roadways
- Elevated sidewalk or roadways
- Improper or unmaintained mats or rugs
- Inadequate lighting
- Improper placement of merchandise or objects
- Failure to maintain an area
- Uneven surfaces
- Failure to properly secure wires or cords
- Failing to follow safety codes
- Lack of warning of a dangerous condition
- Debris on the ground
