Do you need a lawyer for slip and fall?
Slip and fall. It sounds simple—harmless, in fact. But even a simple slip and fall on a carpeted surface can result in broken bones, head injury, vision disturbances and fractures. That’s why every slip and fall should be taken seriously.
Slip & Fall Examples
According to the National Floor Safety Institute, more than 1 million hospital visits each year are due to slips and falls and they are the leading cause of worker’s compensation claims. While many slips and falls are purely accidents, some are due to the negligence of others. They cause such serious health repercussions that many people have been able to recover damages. One example is Anthony Zaccaglin who filed a lawsuit against Starbucks and won a $7.5 million settlement. In March of 2008, Zaccaglin slipped on a freshly-mopped part of the store’s floor, falling and hitting his head. He ended up having a concussion and mild brain trauma, leading to more than a year of brain injury therapy, leaving Zaccaglin unable to work. He won the settlement in December of 2011.
Canadian tennis great Eugenie Bouchard filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Tennis Association on October 14, 2015, alleging that negligence by the Association led her to fall in a locker room on September 4, 2015. She had a “serious head injury” as a result of the fall and later withdrew from the U.S. Open and two other tournaments in Asia.
