Slipping and falling is one of the most common ways to injure yourself in the United States. Unfortunately, many people do not seek the financial help they are entitled to.
The Brownsville and San Antonio accident attorneys of The Begum Law Group take all accidents seriously — especially slip-and-falls. If you have been injured by a slip-and-fall accident, we will fight to ensure that the negligent parties are held accountable. If your fall was the result of someone else's negligence, you deserve compensation. To get that compensation, you will need a seasoned lawyer by your side. We are a Texas-wide law firm with offices in San Antonio and Brownsville, Texas.
Although common, slip-and-falls are not accidents that should be ignored. Here are some facts about slip-and-falls in America:
One million people per year are injured, and nearly 17,000 die
- Most common cause of injury to the brain
- Over two million emergency room visits per year
- Cost over $30 billion per year
Two-thirds of injuries are sustained by adults over 65 years old
- Second leading accident after automobile accidents
One of the reasons why slip-and-fall accidents are so common is because they can happen anywhere — public walkways, the workplace, private property and even nursing homes are not immune from these costly accidents. These types of accidents can cause fractures of the hip, spinal cord trauma, arm and hand fractures, permanent damage to the knees and even brain injury. Because of medical bills, lost wages, reduced ability to earn wages and even the potential need for long-term medical care, a "simple" slip-and-fall can become a costly accident.
