Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury Lawyers

Fort Lauderdale Slip and Fall Lawyers

As you go about your day, whether it takes you through a crowded store, a professional complex, or another person’s home, you do so without the expectation of becoming injured. Unfortunately, hundreds of people each day slip, trip, or fall due to the negligence of a property owner who has failed to identify and eliminate hazards that might lead to preventable accidents. In some cases, the harm may be no more severe than a minor bruise, but in others, the consequences can be significantly more severe. Thousands of people die annually because of the injuries that they sustain in these incidents.

The medical bills, pain, and suffering, and temporary or permanent inability to work at full capacity brought about by slip and fall injuries can have a far-reaching impact on your life. It is important to be aware that you may be able to seek financial compensation through the filing of a civil lawsuit in the matter. Contact the Fort Lauderdale slip and fall lawyers of Salpeter Gitkin, LLP today at 954-467-8622 to be advised about your legal rights.

Injuries Associated with Slip and Fall Accidents

The instant that an individual feels him or herself losing balance and toppling toward the ground, the body reflexively attempts to stop the fall or at least to reduce the force of impact. This natural response can, ironically, lead to the first health concerns associated with a slip and fall as the sudden tightening of muscles or awkward attempts to regain or retain one’s balance can cause sprains, muscle tears, and other soft tissue damage. The following are some of the injuries that slip and fall accidents may produce:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Fractured bones
  • Muscle tears
  • Tendon or ligament damage
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Severe contusions
