Slip and Fall Lawyer Helping Fall, Accident Victims, Establish Negligence for a Viable Lawsuit

Slip and fall injuries can be a deathly serious matter. While we may hope for a soft landing, too often, fall victims suffer broken wrists, injured joints, spinal cord damage, or head trauma. The risk of injury in fall accidents is exceptionally high for elderly people. Slip or trip and fall accidents are among the leading injury-related causes of death for individuals over 65.

Depending on where the falls occurred, a victim or their family may be able to file premises liability lawsuits to recover compensation. The complexities of a premises liability claim will likely require the legal guidance of fall accident lawyers experienced in these types of cases.

Attorney Samantha Flanagan and her Commerce City-based law firm have experience helping clients and their families in settlement negotiations with the insurance company and property owners. Flanagan Law prides itself on providing clients with compassionate legal representation, taking the burden off victims’ shoulders while they recover from their injuries.

The health of our clients is our top priority. We want you to start feeling better without worrying about insurance companies and the legal system. Entrust Flanagan Law with your slip and fall case, and we will endeavor to help you recover the maximum compensation for your hardships.

How Do Slip and Fall Accidents Happen?

Most of us have taken a sudden unexpected fall at some point in our lives. You probably know that these accidents can happen in many ways, from an icy sidewalk to a piece of uneven carpeting.

Common conditions which may lead to a slip or trip and fall accident include:

  • Broken sidewalks.
  • Debris left at a construction site.
  • Electrical cords are left on the floor.
  • Hazards are left on the ground of a public park.
  • Inadequate lighting in stairwells.
  • Potholes in parking lots.
  • Snow and ice on sidewalks.
  • Torn carpeting or loose floorboards.
  • Wet floors and other spills.

What Are Common Slip and Fall Injuries?

If a dangerous condition causes someone to trip/slip and fall, they may suffer a severe injury when their body impacts the ground. The injuries could be minor or severe, depending on the terrain and physics of the incident. In some unfortunate cases, the injuries may even prove fatal.

Fall injuries may include the following:

  • Broken arms, wrists, ankles, and legs.
  • Bruises.
  • Concussions.
  • Deep lacerations.
  • Dental injuries.
  • Dislocated shoulders.
  • Facial disfigurement.
  • Hip fractures are more common in fall accidents than in other circumstances.
  • Paralysis.
  • Organ damage and internal bleeding.
  • Overextended joints.
  • Soft tissue injuries.
  • Spinal cord injuries.
  • Sprains and strains.
  • Torn tendons and ligaments.
  • Traumatic brain injuries.
  • Whiplash.

Who May Be Held Liable in a Slip and Fall Injury Claim?

The property owner, manager, and occupier are entrusted with a duty of care to all lawful guests, visitors, customers, tenants, and employees. If a hazardous condition has been left unfixed and no warning signs were posted about the hazard, then the negligent property owner may be held responsible for damages.

It does not matter whether it was public property or private property (a government entity is more difficult to file a slip and fall claim against, however, and will most certainly require the help of a knowledgeable attorney). What matters is that the victim and their legal counsel must establish that the manager and the owner’s negligence were directly responsible for the cause of the accident and resulting injuries.

Landlords, businesses, and neighbors must maintain a safe property for all potential guests. Contact our law offices immediately if the property is deemed unsafe and an injury occurs.
