What You Need to Know After a Slip and Fall Accident

More than a million people a year get put into the emergency room (ER) for slip and fall accidents. 

The average hospital fee for a slip and fall accident is about $30,000 to $40,000.  

According to Adam Kutner, a slip and fall can have up to 5 broken bones on average.

Slip and fall injuries are the leading cause of injuries in terms of accidents. 

These are just a few statistics that we have run through.

These statistics should also be enough to convince you that a slip and fall accident is no joke.

Just because you feel fine or think that you might heal up later doesn’t mean it’s actually all fine and dandy IN your body. You could possibly have micro fractures or maybe something went slightly off internally.

It is best to get checked by a doctor and medically cleared for the possible pain that is to come.

This is a best case scenario though. If you think about the worst case, where there could be broken bones and possibly internal organ damage, what should you do?

If you were involved in a slip and fall injury and the slip and fall accident led to you getting injured severely, the first thing you should do is make sure that you are medically cleared. We can’t stop you from feeling better and being able to function.

If you are barely able to walk because of how bad the accident was, then you are long overdue for surgery and other procedures to help you out. 

However, if you’re unsure whether you should see a doctor, or HOW to go through the procedure so that you get the best medical treatment, our slip and fall injury lawyers can help you. 

For the damages you received and the pain and suffering that came with that damage, you can file a claim to get the compensation for your medical bills, emotional damages, and physical damages that were caused by another entity’s negligence.

What Can Cause a Slip and Fall Injury and Accident?

Slip and fall injuries are the most common injuries. They can also end up being the most deadly. 

The saddest part is that they can be preventable. 

Lots of times, the entities that are negligent are businesses or big corporations.

Some of the signs that an entity can put up is a:

  • Wet floor sign
  • Warning sign
  • Forbid usage of said area

These 3 signs and warnings alone are enough to let the people in that area know that there is a potential safety hazard and would at least save them the label of being “negligent”. 

But by not putting any warnings up, the business is basically setting themselves up for disaster. 

The people in that area can get hurt by the broken environment. In buildings and just anywhere in general that people work and move around in, these are common things that cause an injury:

  • Cracks in the floors
  • Uneven sidewalks and walkways
  • Slippery floors
  • Unnecessary trash and hubris on the floor
  • Malfunctioning or displaced items, such as broken doors or broken cabinets
  • Improperly installed furniture
  • Malfunctioning or poorly maintained equipment (elevators, bathrooms, escalators)

What Are the Consequences of a Slip and Fall Injury?

Like previously stated, a slip and fall injury can be small. You might just trip on something and then get up and be over with it. That’s the best case.

In most cases, that is not the case. A slip and fall injury can cause a load of dangerous consequences such as: 

  • Broken bones
  • Back injury
  • Neck injury
  • Spinal cord injury or displacement
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Death
  • Possibly more…

This is just a small list. You might be experiencing or might experience more pain than the listed consequences. Don’t be careless and keep suffering. Give our team a call. We will make sure to take care of you in the best way possible. 

Why a Personal Injury Lawyer? 

Why should I hire a personal injury lawyer? 

That’s a great question, and here is the answer to that. 

A personal injury lawyer can help YOU get the financial compensation for the pain and suffering you went through. 

Lots of people think that the medical insurance will cover up for most of the pain and suffering. And although that is right, lots of people are also uninsured. So how do they go about their injuries? Sometimes people that are insured come out of the hospital with high medical fees. What should THEY do?

Call a personal injury lawyer. Especially us. We can make sure that you are taken care of and that you get the fullest financial compensation for whatever pain you went through. 

You might think of a personal injury lawyer and think that we are just here to take your money, or possibly to just game the system, but that is not what we are. First of all, we don’t charge anything UNTIL we win you your case and the money you deserve. Second, as legal experts in personal injury, we are sure to get you your win. 

Some of the things that we can win you are:

  • Medical bills
  • Bodily injury
  • Property damage
  • Loss of wages and benefits
  • Disfigurement and dismemberment of the body
  • Emotional pain
  • Physical pain
  • Wrongful Death
  • Possibly more…

This is just a small list though. The specific details of your case can only be determined once you have really sat down with one of our personal injury lawyers and talked about the details of your injury and accident. 

Our team is very well experienced in putting together a case for whatever case that was caused by negligence of another entity, and so you don’t need to worry. Just tell us the truth of what happened and how it happened and then we will take it from there.

The Other Party and Their Team

What is another reason to hire a personal injury lawyer?

Well the answer is quite clear. 

You won’t just be fighting the other entity.

The lawyers and legal team of the other entity will be your opponent. In fact, you may not even have to see the other party ever again. You will most likely be talking to and settling the claim with the other attorney. 

The problem is that those people are representing the other party, the people that hurt you. Why would they try to give you money, if any money at all?

They are trying to give you the LEAST amount of money as possible. They are not looking out for you and trying to help you. The other party will actually make a case themselves so that it makes it look like you may have broken some rules that would have prevented you from being injured and make it look like your fault.

Some of the things they could say are:

  • You weren’t supposed to be on that area
  • You weren’t paying attention to your surroundings
  • You were trespassing on another property you weren’t supposed to
  • The danger was obvious enough to avoid
  • Your shoes or the footwear you had on wasn’t appropriate

These are just a small list of things, but also the most common things that are said to you if you were injured on that property. Without proper evidence and a team backing you up, you could end up just paying everything out of pocket and losing the case, which would make you feel even worse. 

If you need to speak to their team of lawyers and adjusters, then we recommend at least avoiding these 3 critical statements. It is similar to a car accident. You don’t want to self-incriminate and give off the impression that you may have had even 1% of the fault. To give an example, if the judge finds that you can be found to have been responsible for 20% of the accident, then from your initial award of, let’s say $500,000, 20% will be taken from it. That will leave you with $400,000. You want to keep as MUCH money as possible to pay for the medical fees, wages, etc. 

Anyway, here are the 3 things to avoid saying:

  1. Any apology. Although it is respectful and shows manners, it also means that you are taking some sort of responsibility for the accident. Never say sorry.
  2. Speaking with the other attorney directly without the help of our personal injury lawyers. You do not know what the other party has heard from their client. If they start asking questions or ask you to talk on the phone, there is a good chance they want you to say something that will put you on the fault, not their client. Never speak with the other party’s adjusters or lawyers.
  3. Do not accept a settlement. Just because they put money on the table doesn’t mean that it is the maximum amount of money that you can win. They probably offered you the LEAST amount of money possible so that they can just pay a little and not deal with the consequences. Do not accept the settlement unless you talk about it with our team and we decide that we are all on board.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still open questions?

Ideally, you will want to hire a personal injury lawyer as soon as you get injured. If you are injured and your body is in pain, why wait and live with the pain? That makes no sense. You want to get rid of the pain as soon as possible. If you have more questions contact us

That depends on how badly you were injured. People joke around about “I wish I got hit by a car” or “If I slip and fall here, I’m gonna make a fortune”. Although that is possible, it is not always possible. They are jokes for a reason. You will make as much as you are owed. If it is just a scratch, then you will not be compensated much. If you had to have major surgery and are going through rehab, then you will make MUCH more than just a simple scratch or small bump.

As a personal injury lawyer in Miami, what I do is make sure that you make your money back (maybe even more) from whatever damages you sustained. If someone else caused your injuries, then you have to contact us and consult with our team. We will make sure that you are taken care of. My job is to see if your current situation is actually someone else’s fault and if you can get your money back for the treatment you went or are going through.
