Slip and Fall Accidents: Top 5 Ways to Protect Public Safety and Prevent Painful Injuries

Accident lawyers see slip and fall cases to verdict or reach settlement agreements for them on a daily basis. These cases are unfortunately all too common. Business owners become careless about public safety and landlords find themselves too busy to make necessary repairs before a tenant is injured on the property. There are too many downsides to this carelessness to name, but what it comes down to is public safety. Those who have sustained injuries due to the liability of a landlord or a business owner who failed to make necessary repairs to the property, thus allowing injuries to occur, are entitled to compensation for those injuries.

In the interest of public safety, our Law Resource has provided the Top 5 lawyer-backed ways to prevent slip and fall accidents before they can become a public safety risk!

Recovering Lost Wages: Accident Victims Are Losing More Than Just “Sick Days”

After an accident with a recovery expected to be lengthy or that causes a permanent and lifelong injury such as a Traumatic Brain Injury, there’s an equally lengthy list of reasons a victim or their family may be entitled to obtain financial compensation. Depending on the severity of the injury and the prognosis made by a specialized team of medical professionals (known as “expert witnesses” when testifying at trial), a victim may qualify for a variety of monetary compensation to offset medical expenses that they’ve incurred by no fault of their own.

Knee and Leg Injuries After Accident Reduce Mobility and Quality of Life

While considered a non life-threatening injury, knee and leg injuries are some of the most painful a victim involved in an accident can sustain. Knee and leg injuries can happen anywhere: work, pedestrian hit-and-run accidents, and falls on improperly maintained sidewalks or on wet floors without proper warning signs. After sustaining an injury to the knee or leg, a victim can find themselves lacking the athleticism and mobility they once had. These injuries are particularly devastating to those who enjoy physical exercise: running, jogging, and playing basketball to name a few.

Pedestrian Accident? 4 Things Victims Must Know!

Pedestrian accidents are a common cause of injuries and unfortunately, fatalities. Hit-and-run accidents involving pedestrians are some of the most catastrophic due to the lack of “protection” that would’ve been provided in the event of a motor vehicle accident. The victim is not surrounded by airbags or the protective steel of a car. Pedestrian accidents usually occur while a victim is crossing the street or is already in the middle of the street, and a vehicle fails to abide by the rules of the road, heed speed limits, or stop completely when necessary.
