Slip and Fall Accident Injuries
While slip and fall accidents aren’t nearly as severe or consequential as automobile accidents, they can still have a significant effect on your quality of life. And the resulting injuries can still carry with them significant medical bills.
Our Arkansas slip and fall attorney has seen clients suffer:
- Broken ankles and feet
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Head injuries
- Severe sprains and strains
Because these accidents tend to be common, victims will often work under the assumption that they have no claim. You might try and shrug off your injuries and deal with them silently.
That isn’t your only option. Arkansas slip and fall accident attorney Alan LeVar can help pursue compensation that can pay for your medical bills and other associated expenses.
Do You Have a Slip and Fall Injury Lawsuit?
Few things are more unnerving for people in Arkansas or anywhere nationwide than having your life waylaid after taking the kind of scary tumble that leads many victims to pursue a slip-and-fall injury lawsuit.
Falling, however, may be more common — and more debilitating — than you realize.
Consider these facts about falls from the Centers from Disease Control:
- Twenty percent of serious falls result in broken bones or a head injury.
- Falling can be especially treacherous for elderly people. Roughly 2.5 million Americans age 65 and older visit an emergency room each year because of injuries sustained during a fall.
- The medical costs that arise from fall injuries total about $34 billion each year. Hospital bills account for roughly two-thirds of that amount.
You should not have to cover your own medical expenses after taking a serious tumble on someone else’s property. Our personal injury attorneys may be able to secure a settlement on your behalf, particularly when any of the following circumstances were applicable to the place where you accident happened:
- Steps were uneven.
- Carpeting was wrinkled.
- The lighting was poor.
- There was debris in your path.
- Handrails were faulty.
If you fell in public or on someone else’s property, or a loved one sustained a serious injury in this manner, please contact the Little Rock personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Alan LeVar to explore your chances for winning a premises liability lawsuit. You can reach one of our Arkansas attorneys online or by calling (888) 220-7068.
