According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, common injuries sustained due to falls include:

  • Broken bones – Falls are especially damaging to the bones of older people
  • Paralysis – About 22 percent of spinal cord injuries are caused by falls
  • Back and neck injuries – Long-term back pain is a common result of a fall
  • Head injuries – Falls are the chief cause of traumatic brain injuries
  • Wrongful death – About 25,000 people die from falls each year.

Even falls that seem harmless at first can cause unseen damage.

Accidents that cause falls

The numbers are just as alarming in Indiana. In a recent three-year period, nearly 42,000 people in Indiana went to the hospital for falls. Many hazards lead to falls:

  • Construction sites
  • Snow and Ice
  • Unmarked slippery surfaces
  • Unconnected floor mats
  • Defective seating
  • Inadequate handrails
  • Design flaws
  • Poor lighting
  • Holes in the ground or floor
  • Uneven surfaces

Our attorneys have the resources to tell if a fall was your fault or someone else’s.

Why you need an attorney who focuses on injuries from falls

Medical bills and lost work from a fall can quickly cost you thousands of dollars. You could even have costs far into the future that you are not aware of. You may be entitled to compensation if a property owner or tenant acted negligently and caused your fall. While your case may seem clear to you, proving it is never simple. Premises liability laws are complicated. They require the knowledge and experience of a personal injury attorney.

Richard Truitt makes sure no detail is missed. He knows how to prove that:

  • Your accident was caused by unsafe property conditions
  • The owner and/or manager knew about the unsafe conditions and failed to act.

Your odds of proving your case greatly improve with legal help.
