The Severe Impacts of Slip and Fall Accidents
A personal injury from a slip and fall accident can change your life dramatically in an instant. Whether it is temporary or permanent injury that may result from a slip and fall, you should immediately contact a Tucson personal injury attorney at Thrush Law Group to ensure that your health, ability for future work, and financial status are legally protected. Some of the most critical affects that result from slip and fall accidents include:
Time Lost At Work / Financial Stress
Most slip and fall accidents that happen each year result in the victim being forced to take a leave from work for at least one month. This can result in money loss and financial stress, especially when you take into consideration any fees that you may have to initially pay before the outcome of your case.
Many slip and fall injuries result in fractures and other types of injuries that may not just prevent you from going to work and making money, but can also require weeks or sometimes months to heal, as well as require any physical training to help heal the injury. A long healing period means it is difficult to walk, run, exercise, and do other activities that are very necessary for your every day life.
In severe cases, a slip and fall injury could result in spinal injury, a head injury, or another type of injury that may never fully heal and thus resulting in permanent disability for the victim. This could render them incapable of working ever again, and therefore unable to take care of themselves and their own needs, taking away their opportunity for a normal life as they were living before the injury. This not only affects the victim financially, but emotionally as well.
Death is a scary but very real possibility of slip and fall injuries in any place of work. There are many hazards to avoid that can prevent falling and hitting your head on the ground, falling down a flight of stairs, or any other severe incident that could occur.
Once you have received the medical care that your injuries require, you should consult with an experience personal injury lawyer to discuss a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf.
