Common Slip and Fall Injuries
Slipping and tripping accidents cause life-changing harm to thousands of people across Bucks County and the Delaware Valley each year. Falling from a higher surface or hitting the ground at an awkward angle can lead to severe injuries. Although broken bones are the most common type of injury in slips and falls, these accidents can also lead to:
- Spine and neck injuries, sometimes resulting in permanent paralysis
- Concussions and other types of traumatic brain damage
- Deep cuts and bruises
- Ligament tears, especially in the ankles, knees, elbows, and shoulders
- Facial injuries like broken teeth and eye damage
Unfortunately, you may deal with chronic pain for years after a bad slip and fall. Medical bills and other out-of-pocket expenses may pile up, adding financial burdens to your physical pain. You may be unable to work or enjoy your life in the way you could before your injuries.
At Ostroff Godshall Injury and Accident Lawyers, our experienced attorneys are well-regarded in Bensalem and across the Delaware Valley for our track record of success in slip and fall cases. We will fight like hell for the compensation you deserve for your losses.
Making the Wrongful Party Pay for Trip and Fall Damages
Proving that another person directly caused a slip and fall accident can be difficult. Landowners are not automatically at fault for every accident that happens on their land. Your ability to hold a property owner responsible for your slip and fall accident depends on several factors, like your reason for visiting the property.
Our slip and fall lawyers know how to prove that a landowner’s reckless and careless behavior caused your injuries. We are experienced in gathering evidence from multiple sources, and we regularly work with top medical specialists to show the full extent of your injuries. At Ostroff Godshall Injury and Accident Lawyers, our seasoned Bensalem attorneys will work to understand how the slip and fall accident impacted your life and make sure you are fully compensated for your losses. There is no charge for the initial consultation—you will not pay us anything unless and until we get compensation for your trip and fall injuries.
