Slip & Fall Accidents

Slip & Fall Accidents

Albuquerque Brain Injury Lawyer

Slip and fall injury cases often occur on property not controlled by the injured party. When this occurs, it opens up the opportunity to create a premises liability lawsuit against the negligent homeowner or property controller who permitted a slip or trip hazard to exist on their property. If you have been hurt in a such a situation, you must ensure that you receive proper and full compensation for any injuries, as the consequences of your slip and fall could be as severe as a brain injury.

Albuquerque Brain Injury Attorney Michael J. Doyle can assist you in creating a solid injury claim that accounts for all your necessary expenses. Our law firm understands that initial settlements or offers from the negligent party and their insurance company often do not foresee how you will be affected in the future, near and far. We will not rest until it is certain that you will be comfortable in the months and years to come.

How Slip and Fall Accidents Occur

No one intends to cause a welcome guest or visitor to suffer a slip and fall accident, and yet commonplace negligence and lack of safety precautions cause these accidents regularly.

Hazards around homes, offices, and retail locations that can cause slips and falls include:

  • Uneven or lifted carpeting
  • Slippery tiles
  • Uncleaned wet spots
  • Steps with no handrails
  • Loose electric cables
  • Fragile wooden flooring

In Arizona State, anyone who owns or controls a piece of property has an inherent and unshakable duty to ensure that anyone who is openly welcomed onto said property is safe. If there are any hazards that could cause injury present, they must be remedied within a reasonable amount of time. Simply warning a guest that there is a puddle of water in the bathroom is not enough to escape liability; they must do something about it to make the area safe again.

Consequences of Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are one of the most traumatic types of injuries that can happen without a moment’s notice and almost anywhere. Young children and elders are especially susceptible to the consequences and must always be given proper supervision in areas where a trip hazard may exist. All it takes is one tumble to cause serious injury.

Injuries related to slip and fall accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Broken bones
