Accidents do happen and we should be ready to face and act on their consequences.
Slip and fall is one type of accident that many of us may have experienced once in our lives. It may have happened when we were young playing or goofing around with our friends or siblings. There could be a time that it gave us stomach pain laughing at how a friend may have slipped and fallen from a stair. It is like being in a video shoot when suddenly the protagonist is gone all of a sudden from the camera frame.
But slip and fall may have serious repercussions for anyone. In the United States alone, based on the statistics from the National Safety Council, in 2020 there were 645 deaths caused by falls from elevation while 49,250 had serious injuries. There are also cases where a slip may result in broken bones, spine, hip, and even head injuries.
Employers, owners of public places such as malls and parks, and private properties try their best to prevent this and come up with safety programs and precautions.
However, reality bites that these accidents do happen, whether caused by negligence or non-compliance. Thus, a person, whatever their physical condition, could experience the unwanted negative impact of these accidents.
As to any type of unwanted incident, the first thing we need to address is the physical intervention that needs to be done as soon as possible.
- Seek help from the person closest to you.
- Call your colleague or officer or employee or even a stranger to assist.
- Seek medical attention even if you don’t feel any immediate physical pain.
- And as to any instance, transaction or accident, we should be able to document everything (this is where our smartphones become really handy!) from taking photos, to getting the names of those who helped or assisted you.
One may think that we should blame ourselves for such accidents, but that’s not the case.
Because such an experience may result in short-term or long-term physical injuries that eventually bring about negative emotional, mental, and financial pain not just to the person involved but also to their loved ones.
To help yourself in this situation, it is wise to seek the best slip-and-fall lawyers who will use their expertise, time, and knowledge to serve you.
The health and well-being of the person (and even their families) will be the top priority one has to deal with. Hiring the slip and fall accident attorney will lessen the burden you have to deal with and it may even be the best thing that you will do.
They will guide and do all the work for you in claiming appropriate assistance and damages based on the factors that led to such an accident. This requires a skillset and expertise to work on the ins and outs of establishing liability/fault in a slip and fall case.
