      Common Types of Slip and Fall Accident Injuries

      Falling accidents are one of the most common types of personal injuries. Research suggests that more than a million Americans suffer falling accidents annually. Over 17,000 of these falls result in fatal injuries each year. 

      Some slip and fall accidents result in minor injuries. But others cause devastating and ongoing medical conditions. The outcome of your accident will depend on the circumstances of your fall. 

      Understanding the circumstances and consequences of your falling accident will help you to communicate with your doctor more effectively. This can give you the best chance at securing financial recovery. 

      Common injuries from slip and fall accidents include: 

      • Broken and fractured bones
      • Spinal cord and nerve damage
      • Knee, shoulder, and joint dislocation
      • Sprained wrists or ankles
      • Concussions
      • Traumatic brain injuries 

      These are only a few examples of the types of injuries that can result from a slip and fall accident. Even if you do not feel injured immediately after your fall, seek medical attention.  Some injuries do not present symptoms until days or weeks after the initial incident. Do not let an undetected injury cause future problems for you.  After seeking medical attention, speak with a qualified slip and fall accident attorney to protect your rights.  

      Leading Causes of Falling Accidents

      Slip and fall accidents and injuries can occur at any time and in any place. From local businesses to public sidewalks, walking hazards can be present in many situations.  

      Most of the slip and fall accidents that happen each year are preventable. Some of the most common causes of slipping accidents include: 

      • Uneven flooring or pavement.
      • Inadequate lighting.
      • Missing or inadequate signage.
      • Broken handrails.
      • Wet and slippery surfaces.
      • Obstructions in walkways, such as boxes, wiring, and cables.

      Employers and property owners are responsible to ensure that the premises of their businesses and buildings are safe. When a path, walkway, or staircase is hazardous because of someone’s negligence, that person should be held accountable.  

      If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, do not pursue compensation alone. An accomplished attorney will build a powerful case to secure the compensation that you deserve. 

      How the Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers at OPO Will Help You 

      Attempting to secure financial recovery following a slip and fall accident is a complex process. Like any personal injury claim, slip and fall cases are time-consuming. They often require specialized knowledge.

      Drafting and Filing Paperwork—Pursuing an injury claim requires a plaintiff to file legal documents, prove negligence, negotiate with the opposing parties, and more. Each step of the process is very difficult without the proper legal training and experience. The claims process is made even more difficult for accident victims because they are focused on recovering from their injuries. Having an experienced legal professional on your side can make things a little easier.

      Effective Negotiations—In many cases, opposing insurance providers are uncooperative. It is crucial to remember that insurance companies are not your friends. They do not have your best interests in mind. Insurance adjusters have many reliable tactics to undermine and devalue injury claims. They will attempt to pay as little as possible for your accident.  Never attempt to negotiate with an insurance company without representation from an accomplished personal injury lawyer. At OPO, we know the negotiation tactics that tight-fisted insurance companies rely on. We boast a long track record of successfully negotiating large settlements for our clients in Fresno and the surrounding areas.

      Determining Liability—Slip and fall cases can be complex. It can be difficult to know which parties are legally responsible for a victim’s injuries. The knowledgeable lawyers at OPO have plenty of experience in determining legal liability in falling accident cases. We will ensure that any negligent party is held to account for the damages that you sustained.

      Evaluating Your Claim—Determining the value of a personal injury case involves many factors. There is no single method for estimating an appropriate settlement or verdict amount.  Consulting with an accomplished slip and fall accident attorney will ensure that you are able to pursue all of the relevant damages in your case. Victims have the option to pursue compensation for both their monetary losses and non-economic damages. Do not accept a lowball settlement. The legal team at OPO will work hard to secure all of the appropriate damages in your falling accident case. 

      How Can OPO Help Me Win My Case?

      Personal injury cases are incredibly complex. Successfully recovering compensation requires more than one person. Oftentimes, slip and fall claims require the help of experts and specialists. These claims also require compelling evidence to prove liability. The attorneys at OPO have decades of experience with the injury claims process.  

      We know exactly what evidence is needed and how to build a powerful legal case for our clients. If you or someone you love has suffered a falling accident injury as the result of another party’s negligence, do not wait.
