Slip-And-Fall Accidents Cause Serious Head, Neck Injuries. Learn Your Rights
Slip-and-fall accidents might seem like minor injuries – until you endure one yourself. In an instant, you can break an arm or sustain a concussion. Older adults often break bones in their hip, making it difficult for them to get around and live independently. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also reports that adults over 65 years old who suffer a slip-and-fall injury have an increased risk for early death.
There are many factors in a slip-and-fall accident that need to be considered. Worst of all, many of these accidents are preventable. That’s because many of these accidents can be traced back to someone’s negligent actions. A janitor fails to clean up a wet floor in a supermarket or airport terminal. A shopping mall has an unmarked object in a dark stairwell. Hazards on sidewalks near construction sites are not clearly marked. It’s the property owner’s duty to make sure public spaces are safe.
When these accidents happen, the negligent person needs to be held accountable. At the Law Offices of John Rapillo, helping slip-and-fall accident victims get back on their feet is what we do best.
