Every year in America, thousands of people find themselves in the hospital or doctor’s office after sustaining an injury from a slip and fall accident. Accidents involving a slip and fall can easily lead to serious and painful injuries such as broken ankles, dislocated shoulders, bulging discs, traumatic brain injuries, and even death. If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to a slip and fall incident, call the Topeka slip and fall lawyers at Joseph, Hollander & Craft for your free consultation.

Common Slip and Fall Locations

Slip and fall accidents can be caused by many different situations and conditions in nearly any location. It is common for a slip and fall to occur where there is improper floor maintenance, spilled liquids that are not cleaned up, and slick surfaces after inclement weather.  A trip and fall can be caused by a tear in a rug or carpet, uneven or broken pavement, poor lighting conditions, and objects or obstructions impeding walkways.

A study by the National Floor Safety Institute revealed that grocery stores are the most common location of slip and fall accidents. Common hazards that can be found in a grocery store include spilled foods or liquid substances that create slippery floor conditions, improperly arranged displays that pose a dangerous trip hazard, and improperly maintained rugs, carpets, and other floor coverings. Injuries from slip and fall accidents are also common in apartment buildings, hospitals, hotels, motels, parking lots, restaurants, and shopping centers.

Compensation For Your Topeka Slip and Fall Injury

Many fall victims do not realize the true value of the damages they have suffered as a result of their fall. There are many different types of losses that can be included in a claim. Victims who file a claim with the insurance company on their own will likely fall prey to having their claim undervalued.

The experienced Topeka slip and fall lawyers at JHC will thoroughly examine your claim to identify any and all possible damages and will be able to determine the true amount of compensation that should be sought. Damages that can be claimed for a slip and fall accident include:

Lost income: Injuries sustained from a slip and fall or trip and fall can cause the injured person to miss time from work. Some of the time missed can be attributed to time taken off to attend doctor visits and receive treatment necessary for a successful recovery. Some jobs have tasks and requirements that cannot be performed at all because of limitations and restrictions associated with the injuries caused by the accident. Every hour missed from work equals lost wages and earnings. If the injury is severe enough, it may result in a permanent disability that requires the injured person to change jobs or stop working altogether.

Medical expenses: Even minor injuries experienced after a slip and fall can be costly. The more serious and severe the injury, the more extensive the necessary medical treatment and care will be. Expenses for medical care include assistive devices, doctor visits, home health services, hospitalizations, medical equipment, medications, rehabilitative therapy, and surgeries. When an injury is so severe that it will require ongoing or life-long care, future medical costs come into the equation.

Non-economic damages: Some losses are much more difficult to put a value or price tag on.  These intangible losses can be difficult to identify and even more complex to quantify. Some examples include disfigurement, emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of quality of life, pain and suffering, and permanent disabilities.

If someone is injured by a slip and fall at a rental property, who is liable?

There are many factors to consider when dealing with a slip and fall injury at a rental property. The landlord or management company for a rental property has a duty to keep the rental property safe for renters and invitees. They are also responsible for regularly inspecting common areas and keeping them free from hazards. However, if a dangerous condition exists inside a tenant’s residence and the landlord was not notified of the condition, then liability can become much more complicated.
