Don’t Take The Fall For A Slip- Or Trip-And-Fall Injury
Tripping and falling on someone else’s property can bring a painful end to your visit. There are many causes of such injuries – from uneven stairs or ripped carpets to liquids spilled on the floor. If you were harmed in a trip-and-fall injury, your response should not be to apologize for being clumsy or inattentive. If you are a guest on the property of a commercial or private property owner, you have the right to expect the property will be free of unexpected hazards.
The personal injury attorneys at Deitch & Perone, P.C., can help you file a trip and fall lawsuit to ask for the compensation you need to heal from your accident. With two convenient offices in West Long Branch and Scotch Plains, we serve clients throughout Union, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean and Somerset counties.
Falls Can Lead To Serious Or Catastrophic Injuries
The sudden, unexpected nature of these types of falls produces severe – even life-altering – damage to the body. Depending on the floor surface material, the speed of the fall and if you hit anything on the way down, you could have experienced any of the following:
- Neck injuries or “whiplash”
- Head injuries/traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Soft-tissue damage to the limbs or back
- Leg injuries to the ankle, hip or knee
- Arm and shoulder injuries
- Facial injuries
All of these injuries can also leave you with chronic pain or reduced ability to function in daily life. Our attorneys will investigate the details of the accident, search for evidence of negligence by the property owner and fight for the support you will need to heal or adjust to your condition. We also help clients ask for damages to pay for lost wages, career-ending injuries and funds to support their family.
If your fall happened at your workplace, you still have access to compensation. Ask our attorney team for information on how to file for and receive workers’ compensation benefits.
Deitch & Perone, P.C., represented a homemaker who slipped and fell in Walmart as a result of the store’s failure to repair a known, leaky roof. As a result of her fall, the plaintiff suffered injuries to her arm and hand, including a rupture of the extensor pollicis longus of the left arm repaired by surgery. The legal team at Deitch & Perone were able to settle in favor of the plaintiff after attending arbitration.
