We know that if you see a hazardous situation, you take steps to avoid it. Nobody wants to get injured. However, there are times when you will not always notice when you are stepping into a potentially hazardous environment. This can lead to serious injuries.
The most common type of premises liability case is a slip and fall incident. That is because, time after time, property owners and their employees fail to take proper precautions to keep their patrons safe. If you have been hurt Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates is ready to help you get the compensation you deserve. If you need a Hallandale Beach slip and fall accident attorney, call us today.
Many people do not take slip and fall injuries seriously. They have a stigma of being fake injuries, ones that people claim when they want some cash. However, this is not the truth for the majority of cases. Slip and fall incidents can lead to major harm, particularly for the elderly population who have weaker bones and can suffer permanent damage. That being said, these incidents can happen to anyone.
These are the most common type of premises liability cases. The Centers for Disease Control tells us that over 800,000 people are hospitalized annually due to falls. Often, the victims suffer from broken and dislocated bones. In the worse case scenarios, a victim can suffer from a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord damage.
If you suffer from a slip and fall incident on another person’s property, you do a few things immediately:
We know that the average hospital cost for a fall injury is $30,000. That number only includes immediate medical care. If a person needs extended rehabilitation or is disabled, these costs will greatly increase. Also not factored in are things like a person’s lost income if they are unable to work due to their injury.
These incidents often happen because a property owner or their employees fail to follow protocol when it comes to keeping floors dry or obstacles out of the path of patrons.
While we know that you probably just want this whole incident to be over with, please seek legal assistance before accepting an insurance settlement or if you have been told that you have no case by the store. Property owners and their insurance companies will do everything they can to discredit you so they do not have to make a payment. Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates will be there to ensure you are treated fairly.
