Privacy Policy

You may have a claim if you have slipped, tripped or fallen

When you enter through the doors of the company you work for and the floors are slippery, you may notice the caution sign to refrain from walking on the wet floor. However, some companies may forget to place those signs on the main floor. People may slip on wet surfaces, fall on broken pavement or trip on rolled up mats.

These injuries may become severe injuries affecting their daily lives. The senior citizen who has fallen may become anxious that he or she will fall again. This person may choose to limit their daily and physical activities. This may cause the person to develop depression and isolate themselves.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP), falls result in more than 2.8 million injuries treated in emergency departments yearly, including 800,000 hospitalizations and 27,000 deaths.

You may want to follow these fall protection strategies:

  • Make an appointment with your doctor.
  • Write down the details of when you fell.
  • Keep moving and exercising. This will help you stay fit.
  • Wear sensible shoes with proper soles.
  • You may want to consider removing home hazards such as soaps, shampoo bottles that can cause you to fall.
  • You may want to add lights to your living space.
  • You may want to keep the hallway lights on in case you need to use the restroom in the middle of the night.
  • Use a cane or walker to keep yourself steady.

If you or a loved one has fallen due to wet slippery floors, broken sidewalks or pathways, you may want to consider hiring an experienced lawyer who can help you get the workers' compensation you deserve.
