Types Of Serious Injuries Recorded In Slip And Fall Cases

 By: Melville Jackson
You must have come across the term 'personal injury' many a times in daily news. It is when there is any loss or damage to a person or property due to the negligence of another individual or organization, that the family or friends of the victim can register a case under the law of personal injury. With the rise in road accidents, the demand for lawyers specializing in this field has increased manifold in the past couple of years.

Personal injury lawyers handle many types of cases other than those involving road accidents. These include wrongful deaths, medical malpractice, slip and fall accidents, workers compensation, and the like. In all these cases the personal injury lawyer demands compensation for the losses incurred by his clients. The compensation includes the amount of money spent on legal procedures and medical treatment of the victim.

Did you know that slip and fall accidents have been on the rise? Usually not many incidences of slip and fall accidents are expected to occur. However, the seriousness of injuries recorded in such type of cases has caused concern to the officials and legal experts handling them. Usually, such cases are filed against owners and builders of faulty constructions where the slip and fall injury takes place. The most challenging part of handling these cases is developing arguments to prove that the building owner is responsible for the accident.

A simple incident like a slip or fall can lead to many serious injuries to the victim. Here is a list of some of the injuries that have been observed in such type of cases.

1. Fractures: Fractures can be both minor and severe. Serious fractures can lead to permanent dis-figuration and change in limb shape. Such cases need moderate medication and therapy for the victim to get back in shape. The legal and medical expenses are claimed through petition in court.

2. Spinal Cord Injuries: The riskiest type of injury is spinal cord injuries, where in the victim stands the risk of getting paralyzed for a life time. The paralysis may be partial or complete, and will need medication all along his lifetime. In such cases of long term medication, the responsible party needs to compensate the expenses that will be incurred by the family to carry on the medication.

3. Head Injuries: Many a times, a serious blow to the head region can actually cause serious brain damage or hemorrhage. This can also turn fatal. Such cases are considered serious examples of slip and fall cases and need aggressive and thorough representation in court.

Recovering the compensation demanded is the main job of the lawyer who is handling a case of slip and fall. Fresno residents must be careful while selecting their personal injury lawyer. They must make sure that he can represent the case aggressively and successfully recover the compensation.
