Slip and Fall Lawyer | Essex County Accident Attorney | Birkhold & Maider, LLC
Slip-and-fall accidents are a common cause of personal injury suits and have many causes related to the negligence of other parties including, but not limited to, uneven pavement/sidewalks, poor lighting, wet or slippery interior floors, damaged flooring, obstructions or debris on floors, sidewalks, or other walkways, poorly placed or absent hazard warning signs, wet or icy exterior walkways, lack of handrails on staircases, among other potential causes.
Slip and fall accidents may result in injuries including: sprains and strains, broken bones, torn ligaments and tendons (sometimes requiring surgical intervention), spinal injuries (such as herniated or bulging discs), shoulder injuries (such as rotator cuff tears) and head injuries (which, if severe enough, may cause traumatic brain injury with resulting neurologic and other issues). If the trauma is severe enough, it might even result in death.
