Nashville Slip-and-Fall Lawyers Helping Accident Victims

Slip-and-fall accidents can hurt more than a person’s pride. They are the leading cause of death in elderly victims and are commonly fatal to infants. Every age group is prone to the occasional misstep or sudden loss of balance. In fact, these accidents frequently occur among the most careful people. Slip-and-falls can be caused by many factors, including:

  • Wet floors
  • Waxy residue
  • Dark walkways
  • Uneven pavement
  • Loose gravel or dirt
  • Spilled food or drinks
  • Marble or granite surfaces
  • Conveyer belts, escalators
  • Broken steps and handrails
  • Construction ladders, scaffolding

Slip-and-fall accidents are often caused by negligence, or the failure to fulfill the legal duty to exercise reasonable care. This refers to the usually unintentional yet harmful conduct of others, resulting in injury. Negligence includes a variety of behavior, from failing to properly dispose of a banana peel to purposely tripping a person as a joke. At-fault parties have breached a legal duty and are liable for injuries caused by their negligence. Our Nashville slip-and-fall lawyers can assist you in seeking compensation if you have suffered harm under these circumstances.

Slip-and-Fall Injuries

Even when adrenaline masks the immediate pain of impact, slip-and-falls can be serious. Some people cannot get up by themselves. Injuries caused by lost balance may involve:

  • Cuts, bruises
  • Scars, abrasion
  • Internal bleeding
  • Blunt head trauma
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Broken bones or teeth
  • Paralysis, quadriplegia
  • Permanent disfigurement

In many cases, a simple fall may require surgery and may have multiple complications. The “wrong” type of fall can even be fatal.
