COMMON TRIP AND FALL INJURIES

Anytime someone takes an unexpected spill there is going to be some kind of effect – ranging from general embarrassment to catastrophic personal injury. Here are a few examples of some of the trip and fall or premise liability injuries we’ve seen over the years:

  • Torn ligaments and tendons – especially in the shoulders
  • Broken/Fractured Bones
  • Traumatic Head Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Fractured Hips
  • Broken Pelvis

In addition, many of these injuries create pain and suffering for the victims of someone’s negligence. Again, these cases can be challenging to prove, but when you have experienced any of these injuries based on the above causes, it is right to pursue compensation.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SLIP AND FALL AND TRIP AND FALL?

While not always the case, in a slip and fall, you are more likely to fall backwards or to the side, while in a trip and fall, you are more likely to fall forward. Slip and falls are the result of too little friction between your feet and the ground. Trip and falls occur when your foot strikes an unexpected object, throwing you off balance along with your momentum forcing you unexpectedly into the same direction.

As common as trip, slip and fall injuries are in Aventura and South Florida, many attorneys are hesitant to take these personal injury cases due to their difficulty to prove under Florida law. The team of experienced trip and fall attorneys at Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, PA has the acumen needed to evaluate the details of your trip and fall accident and to pursue appropriate compensation for damages if it’s evident you have a case.

Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, PA handled my case against Uber for me and got me a great settlement after I was involved in an accident. They handled all of the negotiations with my doctors and with the other lawyers to get me the best deal possible. I definitely recommend their services!

WHAT TO DO AFTER A TRIP AND FALL?

Obviously, if the injury is severe, call an ambulance and seek medical attention immediately. If the pain is strong but palatable, plan on seeking medical attention as soon as possible, but you also want to try to document your surroundings and the incident as best as you can. This means take plenty of photos (if what you tripped and fell on; of the area surrounding where you tripped and fell; of your injuries). Also, you want to file an incident report with the manager (note the names of any staff you speak to). If there were any witnesses, it would be helpful to father their name and contact information as well. Then, call a slip and fall lawyer at 305-964-8127. Don’t talk to an insurance adjuster or sign anything until you have spoken to your trip and fall attorney.
Your trip and fall lawyer needs to investigate what type of maintenance was needed where you fell, was the lighting adequate? is it likely that the tripping hazard existed for a significant period of time where the staff should have known that it existed and failed to take corrective action? have you ever traversed the area where the trip and fall took place? Were you carrying objects or wearing shoes that could have contributed to the trip and fall? Were there any witnesses?
Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, PA are experience trip and fall lawyers that have represented many injured clients for over 90 combined years. Call 305.964.8127 to speak to a trip and fall lawyer immediately. Evening and weekend appointments are available.
