Falls are a Top Cause of Emergency Room Visits

Falls are more pervasive and serious than most people realize. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls prompt about 3 million visits to the emergency room every year.

Here are a few other sobering facts about falls from the CDC:

  • One in five falls results in a serious injury.
  • Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries.
  • Medical costs related to falls are about $50 billion per year.

If you’ve been left with steep medical bills after falling on someone else’s property, it may be time to involve a lawyer.

Holding Property Owners Accountable

To be clear, not every fall is grounds for a personal injury claim. For instance, if the property owner provided clear signage alerting guests of hazard or if you were trespassing, you wouldn’t be eligible for compensation.

When investigating a slip and fall case, here are some of the questions a skilled lawyer will try to answer:

  • Had the property owner been alerted about the hazard before?
  • Did the property owner take steps to warn guests about hazards? For instance, were there signs or barricades?
  • Are you partially to blame for your accident – for instance, were you engaging in risky behavior before your fall?
  • How often does the property owner inspect their premises? What kind of improvements and maintenance has been done before?
  • What kind of damages did you experience because of your fall? Did you need significant medical treatment?

If it appears that the property owner has been negligent and that negligence resulted in your injury, you may wish to file a slip and fall claim. A settlement not only helps you recoup your financial losses, it also holds property owners accountable and makes our communities safer.
