Common Injuries Sustained In Slip And Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents are the leading cause of work-related accidents, with an estimated over 20% of all injuries falling into this category. As a result, over one million workers’ compensation claims for slip and fall accidents are filed every year. Whether you have suffered a soft-tissue or a hard injury, you can find yourself facing serious recovery time.
Some of the most common injuries that can be sustained in a slip and fall accident:
- Fractured and broken bones
- Head injuries (ex: brain damage)
- Injuries to the neck or back
- Knee, elbow and shoulder Injuries
- Soft-tissue injuries (ex: sprains)
For many of these injuries, they will require weeks, months or even years of treatment. For some victims, they will never fully recover to their pre-accident health. For example, should a worker suffer a spinal cord injury in a slip and fall accident, they will suffer serious effects on their cognitive abilities. For this reason, if you or someone you love has been involved in a slip and fall accident, we encourage you to involve our lawyers as soon as possible. We can help you recover just compensation.
