About Slip and Fall Accidents
Many don't realize how dangerous a slip and fall accident can be until they suffer one themselves. Not only can severe injuries occur, even in minor cases serious bruising, sprains, strains and other painful injuries can result. In more serious cases, many have suffered catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injuries or spinal injuries resulting in paralysis. If you or a family member has been injured in such a case, it is important to get legal representation from a skilled attorney as soon as possible. At Mulvey Law Offices, our legal team has extensive knowledge and experience in slip & fall cases, and can advise you how to proceed with a claim seeking compensation for your injuries.
The Impact of Slip and Falls
If you have suffered a slip & fall or trip & fall accident, it is important that you immediately get medical attention, especially in cases in which the head has hit the floor or street with a heavy impact. Some do not realize that they have bleeding in the brain and can suffer severe damage if medical intervention isn't immediately taken. Even in cases when you don't feel that you are injured, you may feel severe effects the following day or day after the fall. In some cases, the painful injury makes it impossible to work until the condition resolves, and the claim filed on your behalf must reflect your loss of income and cover all medical costs, among other damages.
