We provide effective legal strategies for common types of injuries
Some types of injuries, such as the following, occur in slip and fall and premises liability cases far more frequently than others:
- Head injuries, especially closed head injuries, are common in a slip and fall accident. These can be exceptionally serious, and you should always seek medical attention in the wake of such an injury. The extent of a head injury may not be obvious to the victim but such injuries can lead to emotional and psychological issues in addition to physical effects.
- Back and spinal cord injuries, such as slipped disks or fractures, can greatly reduce the range of motion of the victim and may even lead to paraplegia or quadriplegia.
- Joint injuries, including damage to knees, elbows and shoulders, can leave the victim with little or no range of motion in a particular limb. This type of injury can greatly impact your ability to work or engage in certain beloved hobbies.
- Muscle and ligament injuries, such as tears or sprains, can similarly reduce your range of motion and impact your life in countless ways.
A knowledgeable slip and fall injury lawyer in Chicago can discuss your particular injury and explain your legal options.
Our Chicago attorneys often aid elderly victims of falls
Elderly people suffer slip and fall accidents more frequently and can suffer far greater injuries from such incidents, than younger people. Furthermore, the lasting effects of slip and fall injuries on the elderly can be life threatening, especially when nursing home staff or other medical care providers fail to properly treat them. The National Safety Council estimates that almost one in four people who suffers a hip fracture dies within a year of the injury and 50 percent never return to normal mobility.
