When you have been involved in a slip and fall accident, you understand the extreme physical and emotional pain and suffering that accompanies such an injury. Not only can victims suffer from debilitating spinal cord injuries, but they often contend with mental anguish from the immense negative impact of the injury on their quality of life. Slip and fall injuries can happen anywhere and to anyone. If your injury occurred outside of your home, you might be entitled to seek compensation for your losses from the negligent party. 

Slip and fall accidents are one of the leading causes of spinal cord injuries in the United States. However, many victims do not attempt to hold the careless property or business owners liable for their injuries because victims believe that the fall was due to their own carelessness. You could be missing out on substantial financial compensation that you and your family can use to pay for your medical care and recovery. 

If you have been involved in a slip and fall accident, you must contact the accomplished New Orleans slip and fall injury attorneys at Cueria Law Firm today. Our attorneys have extensive experience in representing the victims of slip and fall injuries that have resulted in life-altering impairments due to the negligence of someone else. We have a track record of recovering the maximum settlement for our clients, all while giving you the peace of mind you need to aid in your recovery. 

Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents  

You are at risk of a slip and fall accident almost anywhere: in the home, at a business, on private property, or in a public space. Some of the most common causes of a slip and fall injury include: 

  • Wet or icy staircases
  • Getting out of the bathtub
  • Broken or poorly maintained sidewalks, driveways, or parking lots
  • Debris on a walkway, sidewalk, or in a parking lot 
  • Poor lighting 
  • Loose carpeting or other floor surfaces 

A victim who has sustained a spinal cord injury due to a slip and fall may decide to file a negligence claim against the owner of the premises in which the injury occurred. The injured party will need to prove that the owner acted carelessly and that the carelessness was the result of their injury. Further, the victim will also need to demonstrate that they suffered losses due to the injury, such as medical bills, loss of wages, pain and suffering, or other economic or non-economic damages. 

Severe spinal cord injuries have the potential to leave victims with permanent loss of function and paralysis, requiring a lifetime of medical treatment and rehabilitation. If another person, business, or entity was responsible for your injury, it is imperative that you explore your options for recovering the damages that you deserve. The slip and fall injury attorneys at Cueria Law Firm know how to prove negligence and help you get the best possible settlement for your case.  

What To Do If You Have Been in a Slip and Fall Accident 

If you have had the misfortune of being involved in a slip and fall accident that has resulted in severe spinal cord injury, you will have a long road of rehabilitation, counseling, and medical bills ahead of you. You must report the incident to the property manager, business owner, or individual as soon as possible in order to have the event on record. Seek medical attention immediately to determine if you sustained any injuries in the accident and be sure to keep copies of all medical reports and doctors visits. You should also collect statements from witnesses and take pictures of the scene. Lastly, you should consult with a slip and fall injury attorney before speaking to the insurance company.
