Injuries from a Slip and Fall
Slip and fall injuries can cause serious damages. Many individuals have suffered serious or even life-threatening injuries in such accidents. In the case of older individuals, the bones may have become brittle, and fractured hips or limbs are not uncommon. Head injuries are particularly dangerous as when serious head injuries occur, the injured individual may have a serious concussion or skull fracture. These injuries can create terrible physical and mental symptoms that are well-documented as resulting from head injuries. If you or a loved one has suffered a slip and fall accident, it is crucial that you contact Jacoby & Jacoby as quickly as possible.
Documentation is extremely important in personal injury cases. If you have had a slip & fall accident, if at all possible take photos of the area in which the accident occurred before leaving the area. Get the names, addresses and phone numbers of any witnesses to the accident, as they may be needed should the case go to court. Witnesses can become more difficult to find over time, so any information you can gather at the time of the incident may be vital in making a claim. The most important action is of course getting the needed medical attention. Keep all of your medical bills, transportation costs or any other incurred costs safely as these will likely be needed when making your claim for damages. At Jacoby & Jacoby, a personal injury attorney would like to evaluate your case and advise you as to how to move forward in making your claim for damages.
