The injuries caused by the accident can range from sprains, strains and bruises to injuries of the spinal cord, compound fractures and brain injuries. In the most severe cases, these accidents could lead to permanent impairment.

There may be more than one party that contributed to the negligence which caused the victim to suffer the injury. The liable parties must be served with a notice within the applicable time period which depends on the type of property where the slip and fall took place. In some situations, the limitation period could be as short as 10 days from the date of the accident. These are just some of the many factors that make up the complex claim procedure for slip, trip and fall accidents. This once again, makes having an experienced personal injury lawyer can make the difference between receiving the compensation to help cover medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses and having to suffer in silence.
