When our readers in New York hear about slip-and-fall incidents, they might think – “How bad could the injuries be?” Well, as it turns out, slip-and-fall injuries can actually be quite significant, from muscle tears and pulls to broken bones, and much more. In fact, some injuries from these types of incidents can be so significant that the injured victim cannot return to work for days, weeks or even months. And, as we all know, the medical bills for the treatment of any kind of injury can be substantial.
So, how will a slip-and-fall injury impact the life of the victim? From the victim’s standpoint, there are probably two primary concerns: returning to full health and earning an income. Both concerns oftentimes raise far more questions than answers in the aftermath of the incident in question.
What are your options?
As a victim sorts through the primary concerns that arise after a slip-and-fall incident, that person may begin to think – what are my options? In short, it depends on the circumstances of the slip-and-fall incident. If, as is sometimes the case, the incident occurred because of the negligence or recklessness of a property owner, a personal injury lawsuit may be possible.
At our law firm, we understand that injured victims are concerned about what it will take to prove their case and, hopefully, receive financial compensation. The elements of a personal injury lawsuit can be tricky to prove, but at our law firm we work with our clients to attempt to get them the best results.
