Slip and fall injuries occur when a property owner does not take the necessary precautions to keep their property safe for people who travel on their property. A simple fall can result in broken bones, large medical bills and months of lost income while you get better.
There are one million slip and fall accidents in America each year and the average injury will cost the injured person $30,000 for current and future medical care and lost wages.
When you are in a slip and fall accident make sure to report the incident to the property management as soon as possible and make sure the report is filed. It is important to know that in most cases you do not want to try and settle the claim until the full extent of your injuries is known.
