Slipping and falling incidents can lead to crippling injuries that may require the injured person to participate in months of treatment and rehabilitation to recover. In many cases, these accidents can be avoided altogether if a property owner exercised greater caution and care toward the safety of those on their property. If you or a loved one suffered such an injury, you might benefit from contacting a seasoned injury attorney.

Slipping and falling while visiting another’s private or commercial property may give you the ability to pursue compensation for your injuries. Doing so can provide you and your family with the monetary resources necessary to pay for the services you need to recover fully. An experienced Gainesville slip and fall lawyer could help you recover the compensation you need from a careless or thoughtless property owner.

Common Causes of Trip and Fall Accidents

There are several ways slip and fall accidents could occur in Gainesville, and an attorney could help determine if an accident is grounds for an injury claim.  Most often, this requires the hazards to be due to a property owner’s carelessness or oversight. Some common dangers include:

  • Floors that are wet or slippery because of a spilled substance
  • Toys, power cords, or other debris on the floor in walkways
  • Uneven or unstable stairs or walking surfaces
  • Poorly lit stairwells, aisles, and sidewalks

Property owners in Gainesville owe others whom they invite onto their property certain obligations. Primarily, property owners are required to expend reasonable effort to inspect their land for dangers and either fix or warn others about them, if the owner cannot repair them. Property owners who fail to correct these hazards may find themselves responsible for compensating individuals who slip and fall.

Recovering Losses Following Slipping and Falling

The elderly have an increased risk of suffering more serious or even fatal injuries by slipping and falling. However, even in non-fatal incidents, the injuries sustained by a victim can be severe. Tripping and falling could lead to:

  • Traumatic brain injuries like concussions
  • Injuries to the back and spinal cord
  • Broken bones, especially the hip, pelvis, legs, and arms
  • Internal bleeding

Injuries sustained in a slip and fall accident could require emergency room visits, follow-up doctors’ visits, time spent away from work, and expensive medication. Those injured may also experience a decrease in their quality or enjoyment of life and may need to access healthcare services in the future. A Gainesville attorney could help a slip and fall injury victim seek compensation for these and other damages.

Speak to a Gainesville Slip and Fall Attorney Today

If you or a loved one slipped and fell, suffering an injury, you may have the right to file a claim and seek compensation from the party responsible. This could help provide you and your loved ones with the financial resources you need to meet your medical bills and ongoing expenses while compensating you for other losses you may have experienced in the accident.
