Slip, Trip, and Fall
Each year millions of people are injured in slip, trip, and fall accidents. Statistics repeatedly indicate that most of these accidents happen to people over the age of 65. Many of these same people will suffer some kind of accidental fall on an average of once a year. Available data indicates that falls are the leading cause of injury death in seniors. Often these injuries are caused from a property owner or manager failing to clean up spills of or repair damaged floors in common areas for example.
Sometimes these incidents can be caused by the government, when they fail to warn about or repair damaged sidewalks and other pathways. Either way, an unrepresented victim will find it almost impossible to get compensation from whomever is at fault.
