Injuries Common to Slip/Trip-and-Falls
Broken bones and injured joints are possible, but two of the greatest dangers of falling are hitting your head and injuring your spinal cord. Traumatic brain injuries can be caused by any force that jolts the body or head hard enough to bounce the brain against the skull. From concussions to moderate and severe brain injuries, victims may suffer a range of symptoms such as confusion, memory loss, mood disorders, headaches and seizures. The most severe brain injuries may result in coma or death.
Spinal cord injuries may include damage to the spinal discs or vertebrae as well as to the spinal nerves. Depending on the severity of the injury, victims may suffer chronic pain, muscle weakness, or temporary or permanent disability.
Act Quickly to Prove Property Owner Liability
Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents can occur anywhere, but are especially common in places such as:
- Grocery and discount stores
- Big-box and warehouse retailers
- Gas stations and convenience stores
- Shopping malls
- Sidewalks and stairs
- Homes and apartments
In Virginia, to be liable for injuries, the property owner must have known or should have known about the dangerous condition and/or should have warned guests of the danger. We will immediately investigate the accident in order to preserve the evidence and to determine liability. It is critical to identify and determine the dangerous conditions as soon as possible. Contact an attorney immediately so the property owner does not have time to correct the problem that caused your injury.
