Every day when we get up in the morning, we put one foot on the ground followed by the other, assuming we will stay on our feet throughout the day. But sometimes things beyond our control occur that cause us to slip and fall. When a fall takes place, it can change everything due to the following injuries:
• Herniated disc
• Hip fracture
• ACL tear
• MCL tear
• Other knee injuries
• Broken arm, leg, ankle, or wrist
• Shoulder and elbow fractures
• Facial trauma
• Head injury
• Traumatic brain injury
These are just a few injuries that often occur in Florida slip and fall accidents. Unfortunately, there are many more serious injuries that can cause a victim a lot of pain, medical expenses, and time off of work. Not only do victims of slip and fall accidents suffer pain, but they often have to deal with the inconvenience of the situation. No one wants to go through surgery, go to doctor’s appointments, and spend months in physical therapy all because of a fall-related injury that someone else caused. In addition, victims of slip and falls often lose money because they cannot work while they are trying to heal their injuries.
The seriousness of a slip and fall accident is more than just money. Fall-related injuries can affect victims’ time and overall lives, as victims of slip and fall accidents might not be able to participate in hobbies they once loved or take vacations they already planned. While a victim might only be thinking about the mounting medical bills, an experienced attorney in this area of the law will look at every angle to get victims every penny they are due for the inconvenience they have suffered.
