If you have suffered a slip and fall injury, the property owner or possessor where the injury occurred may be liable for any medical costs, lost income, or any other damages that have been incurred as a result of this accident. Armine Markosyan is here to help you find your way through the claims process and assist you in getting the compensation that you deserve and are entitled to.
Slip and fall accidents are under the purview of liability law. This type of injury can happen on private property, such as a friend’s home or driveway, or somewhere in public, such as a mall or pool. Some common situations that lead to this kind of event include:
- Wet floors
- Icy sidewalks and walkways
- Waxed floors
- Loose cables or wires
- Uneven floors or steps
- Cracks in paving stones or driveways
- Loose handrails
You never know what kind of injury you will experience during a slip and fall. Among the most common cases we receive are spinal and back injuries, hip and knee injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and other broken bones. When you are completely powerless and someone else is at fault for your injury, it can be very frustrating to say the least. You are already experiencing enough stress from your injury and this should not be compounded by needing to figure out how to pay medical bills or cope with your day-to-day life.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) refers to a sudden blow or jolt to the head disrupting normal brain function. A TBI can be anything from a mild concussion to a fatal head injury. Traumatic brain injuries have the potential to severely impair a person’s cognitive function, memory, and motor skills, which can have a serious and long-lasting impact on an individual’s way of life. According to the CDC, every year approximately 1.7 million Americans suffer a TBI, and this number is not getting any smaller over time.
Even mild brain injuries with relatively mild symptoms can turn for the worse with no indication or lead time. It is extremely important to get prompt medical treatment in any TBI case in order to minimize any long term damage or immediate mental deterioration. Once a brain injury is stabilized, some patients are lucky and only need short term care, while others need a more long term strategy, both of which can become extremely expensive very quickly. If you need help navigating a claim against an employer or an individual to help recover past expenditures and handle all future medical expenses stemming from a traumatic brain injury, The Law Offices of Armine Markosyan is here to help you.
