The Effects of a Slip and Fall

According to the national Floor Safety Institute, the average person takes approximately 8,000 steps per day (nfsi.org, 2016). However, it only takes one wrong step to cause an injury. Being injured is not fun, especially if it was caused by someone else. When a person slips and falls for whatever reason, there are several injuries that can occur. Back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, leg pain, sciatica, herniated disc­—any of these injuries can result in chronic conditions that could take weeks or months to fully recover. That is time spent away from work, family, and other activities that you do normally because of pain. There is no reason you should have to suffer from this injury on your own. At One Law Group in Beverly Hills, our personal injury attorneys can help you pursue damages for the injuries you suffered.

The Cost of Personal Injury

A slip and fall in a public place can occur at the most unexpected moment and leave a person with both a bit of embarrassment and pain at the same time. The worst part is that the pain may stick around for a few days or weeks, depending on what was injured during the fall. One of the most common and irritating injuries that can happen is a bruised tailbone, which happens when a person falls on their buttocks. The cost of the injury, on the other hand, can range anywhere from $200 to $400 and that’s not even including the medical care you receive. If you don’t have insurance, then the cost can quickly jump to $1,500 to $3,000, and this isn’t even counting the pain, suffering, and time off work you had to take because of this injury. However, there is hope. If you’ve suffered from a tailbone injury because of a slip and fall while in a public place or private property, depending on your situation, you may be entitled to seek damages under premises liability.

Slippery Surfaces to Fatal Falls

Slippery Surfaces to Fatal Falls

As winter storms continue to beat our state into submission, it is important to keep in mind how dangerous a slipper floor can be for people. Some of the most slippery surfaces are located inside of buildings such as shopping malls, grocery stores, and restaurants. When water or other liquids spill on to the shiny, smooth floors of these places, they become nearly invisible to the ordinary eye of a young individual. Now imagine how hard it is for an elderly person with vision problems to see that small, unmarked water spot. If you have been injured from slipping and falling on the premises of a business or property, depending on the situation, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries. Please call One Law Group in Beverly Hills at (844) 626-1LAW to schedule an appointment with one of our personal injury attorneys today.
