Common Injuries Associated With Slip And Fall Accidents
Broken Bones & Fractures – can occur very easily during a slip and fall accident. The doctor can diagnose those injuries whether or not they are hairline fractures, stable fractures, open or compound fractures, transverse, or oblique fractures, all of which can require treatment ranging from invasive surgery, to needing a cast or the doctor may prescribe rest which often would be the case during rib fractures.
Pelvic Injuries – are most common of elder victims who slip and fall, many of these accidents result in broken hips or cracks in the pelvic region. These types of injuries are often extremely painful and require invasive surgery and extended hospital or nursing home stays.
Soft Tissue Injuries – occur when there is damage to a person’s connective tissues such as ligaments, muscles, joints, or tendons. These could be either temporary or long-term problems depending on the severity of your slip and fall accident. Some of those injuries could linger on and cause a lot more pain than a fracture.
Spinal Cord Injuries – involve damage or trauma to the spinal cord which could cause problems in other areas of the body like with sensation in your toes. These injuries can leave victims with many symptoms such as paralysis, muscle weakness, lack of mobility, and issues with numbness. This is one of the most serious injuries that requires a long recovery time and deserves significant compensation.
Torn Tendons & Ligaments – can happen in almost any slip and fall case. This usually occurs when a person tries to catch themselves when falling. This response can stop the fall all together but can make the injury worse. These injuries may be treated with surgery and physical therapy but can cause the injured person to suffer lifelong consequences that may never fully heal.
Traumatic Brain Injuries – (TBIs) occur when the head or skull is damaged following a fall, which could disrupt normal brain function. These are usually very traumatic injuries which can result in long-term deterioration of normal day-to-day life and activities. Issues can occur such as communication and speech disorders, emotional problems, loss of memory, and reduction of mobility.
Many of these injuries can leave victims of slip and fall accidents having to heal with overwhelming medical expenses. Victims may also be unable to return to work for an extended period of time, leading to lost wages and potentially a much worse standard of living.
If these injuries require extensive and long-term medical care, hospitalization, surgery, or rehabilitative therapy, chances are that victims will also require medication, medical equipment, and potentially full-time home health care. Some slip and fall victims even have to resort to living in an assisted living facility. In the worst case, slip and fall victims may never be able to recover fully from their injuries at all, leaving them in a state of permanent disability. These types of injuries usually deserve multi million dollar settlements or verdicts.
If you experience a slip and fall in Bucks County., Montgomery County, or Philadelphia, you may incur significant physical and monetary losses that will negatively affect your life. Whether your injury resolves quickly, or you are impaired long-term, it is important to contact an experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorney as soon as you can. Understanding your legal options for compensation will provide relief for you and your loved ones who could also be affected by your injury.
Negligence Could Lead To Slips, Trips, And Falls
Many slip and fall accident victims do not understand how to hold a party responsible for their damages. Pennsylvania law gives fall accident victims the right to hold other parties liable for their damages and losses if that party’s negligence contributed to the slip and fall accident. At Philly Lawyers our slip and fall attorneys understand how to identify negligence and liability, helping you receive the significant compensation you require based on the damages you have sustained.

Negligence typically involves the disregard for the safety of others. If a dangerous situation was created by a property owner or business, you could receive proper compensation. A good example is when there is uneven pavement in front of the property and the owner does not do anything to repair it or the owner of the property causes dangerous conditions by not closing off the property when doing the repairs, or failed to remove snow or ice which causes dangerous situations as a result in which someone would suffer an injury.
Plaintiffs (the injured individuals) are responsible for proving that the liable party could have taken an action to prevent the accident but failed to do so.
The owner of the property who was supposed to assume responsibility failed to do so properly and therefore they are responsible for their own failure. The properties are usually insured and the insurance company will assume payment if the owner is deemed to be liable. The insurance company will make payment on behalf of the person who neglected their responsibility and was liable for someone’s injury.
You should see the lawyer as soon as possible because the scene where the slip and fall could change quickly and an experienced attorney will send an investigator right away to preserve the necessary evidence. Often the business establishments have video cameras and the attorney will immediately send the request to preserve the videos.
You do not have to pay anything to us until we win your case. The consultations are free and we take your case on a contingency basis, which means that when the case is resolved, we take a small percentage of the settlement. If there is no recovery, there is no fee. The experienced attorneys could determine very early on the possibility of success.
It is often impossible to determine the value of your case in the very beginning because no one knows the extent of your injuries. The time to figure out how much your case is worth is when you finish the treatments and an experienced attorney can evaluate the matter. All the factors are then analyzed and at that time a request is sent to the insurance company. It is possible to settle the case and if the case is not settled then the matter moves on for litigation. The money you receive for your pain and suffering is exempt from taxes.
Slip and fall accidents can result in many injuries that range from physical damage to a person’s body, mental, emotional, or financial well-being. Physical damages may include, but are not limited to: Back and Neck Injuries, including broken or slipped vertebra (disks) throughout the neck and spinal column. As well as chronic pain that can require surgery or debilitate a person where they no longer can work and earn an income.
Head injuries due to slip and fall accidents may include concussions, traumatic injuries to the brain, which may cause problems with balance, memory, and/or cognitive and behavioral issues.
Pelvic injuries are most common of elder victims who slip and fall, many of these accidents result in broken hips or cracks in the pelvic region. These types of injuries are often extremely painful and require invasive surgery and extended hospital or nursing home stays.
Torn tendons and ligaments can happen in almost any slip and fall case. This usually occurs when a person tries to catch themselves when falling. This response can stop the fall all together but can make the injury worse. These injuries may be treated with surgery and physical therapy but can cause the injured person to suffer lifelong consequences that may never fully heal.
The goal of slip and fall settlements is to make the plaintiff whole again and to restore their financial situation to where it was before the accident. This may include calculating the lifetime cost of medical bills, attorney fees, pain and suffering, household bills, and other necessities.
There are many factors to consider determining slip and fall settlements. Negligence on behalf of a property/ business owner and liability are the two major components as well as the type of injuries.
