According to the National Floor Safety Institute, slip and fall accidents are a leading factor for hospital emergency room visits, accounting for more than 8 million emergency room visits annually. In addition, slip and fall accidents are the main reason for lost days at work and the number one reason for worker’s compensation claims. Furthermore, per the National Safety Council, injuries as a result of falls cost close to $14 million per year in medical expenses and damages.
If you happen to fall in a store or another place of business, the insurance representative for the company will typically do everything possible to deny your claim. If you slip and fall at work, worker’s compensation may not be enough for you to survive on. The recovery you receive via worker’s compensation is usually limited, and not enough to cover all of your medical expenses, much less all of your lost wages.
A slip and fall lawyer is a personal injury attorney that specializes in cases dealing with slip and fall injuries, laws, and claims. An experienced slip and fall attorney will be able to assess your case, and determine how to proceed in the court of law.
