Slip & Fall and Trip & Fall Accidents
In the vast majority of slip and fall cases, no significant injury results from these incidents, but, sometimes, the victim is not so fortunate. A sudden tumble onto a hard surface has the potential to cause major harm to the human body, such as head injury, broken bones, sprained ankles, and torn ligaments—and this is hardly a complete list of physical impairments that can stem from an accident of this type.
An arm or leg injury from a nasty fall is troublesome, for obvious reasons, as the victim is denied the full use of his or her physical capabilities for the duration of the recovery period, but not everyone makes a complete recovery. Sometimes, the slip and fall victim’s injury leaves life-long effects.
What is important to bear in mind is that legal help is available for anyone who has suffered serious injury, whether temporary or permanent, due to the negligence of a property owner. When you reach out to Stackhouse Law, our experienced personal injury lawyers in Jacksonville will begin to get the justice you deserve.
Whether your slip and fall accident took place at a neighbor’s house or a local restaurant or other business, the property owner may be held liable and you may be able to pursue a lawsuit. With that in mind, it is important to note that slip and fall accidents and premises liability cases are not always easy to prove. It can be difficult to show that the accident was caused as a direct result of the property owner’s negligence, which is where a good premises liability lawyer comes in. In many cases, the property owner has insurance and that company will do everything they can to blame you for the accident.
