How 1.800.HURT.511 can help after your slip and fall accident!

How 1.800.HURT.511 can help after your slip and fall accident

When you walk around the city, you have the reasonable expectation that the city and business owners will keep their walkways and pedestrian areas safe of hazards so that you can travel on foot without the fear of falling or injuring yourself because of unsafe conditions. That said, there are plenty of times that you are at risk of slipping and falling due to negligence by the people responsible for maintaining the premise that you are on. These situations can be very dangerous, and cause permanent damage to a victim.

If you have been injured as a result of an improperly maintained property, then you are the victim of premise liability and may be entitled to more compensation than you initially realize. Personal injury settlements and lawsuits seek to address the immediate financial issues such as medical bills and lost wages, but they additionally calculate damages for the non-economic impacts of an injury as well. Contact us now to be connected with an personal injury attorney in our network who you can speak to about the injuries that you have sustained, as well as how they can help you get the money you deserve.

Read more below about some general information and statistics regarding these dangerous and unfortunate injuries, and schedule your free case analysis as soon as possible.

Facts About Slip and Falls

Slip and Falls are a leading cause of injury across all age groups and are the most common way non-fatal injuries occur for every age group except for people between the ages of 10 and 24, where it is the second leading cause of such injuries. As you can imagine, there are some alarming facts and statistics related to these injuries.

  • More than one million people go to the emergency room each year for slip and fall accidents. Over the course of a year, that comes out to 2,000 hospitalizations a day.
  • Half of all accidental deaths in the home are caused by a fall. Even though slip and fall accidents are often the most serious for older adults, they’re a leading cause of injury for all age groups.
  • Roughly one out of three adults over the age of 65 will fall each year. Moreover, close to 60% of nursing home residents fall every year.
  • Falls are the leading cause of brain injury. A brain injury can have lasting effects on everyone close to or associated with a victim.
  • Slips and falls are the main cause of worker’s compensation claims and are the leading cause of occupational injury for people aged 55 years and older.

Calculating Damages After a Slip and Fall Injury

After you have suffered a serious medical injury, some of the most immediately alarming issues beyond your physical suffering are your mounting bills and expenses. On average, victims may miss 11 days of work due to a slip and fall injury, which adversely impacts their ability to pay for the medical bills, compounding the financial stress. These are known as economic damages, and while they are central to a personal injury case, they are not the only things that we will help you seek compensation for. All told, slip and fall accidents cost Americans more than $34 billion each year.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are a portion of a claim or lawsuit that seeks compensation for issues such as medical bills, surgery costs, and any associated expenses related to your injuries and treatment. In addition to the medical costs, these damages include your lost wages from missed work, as well as any possible long-term disability or decreased earning capacity. Finally, these damages will include any additional expenses related to the injury that we are able to identify, even including services that you had to pay for that you would normally do yourself.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the average hospital cost after a slip and fall is over $30,000.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are more complicated to calculate than economic damages in a personal injury case, but they are no less important. These types of damages include issues like the actual pain and suffering that you experience after these types of injuries, as well as the possibility of depression due to your lack of mobility, or fear of traveling in the city after being injured in this manner.

There are a variety of methods that an experienced slip and fall lawyer in NYC will employ in order to determine the true cost of these damages, but one common method is by using a multiplier. This multiplier is a number along a scale that is intended to indicate the severity of the economic damages in a way that is fair and understandable. Once this number has been chosen, it is applied to the economic damages in order to apply measurable amounts to these abstract damages.

Common Examples of Slip and Fall Accidents in NYC

Common Examples of Slip and Fall Accidents in NYC

The most common cause of slip and fall accidents are surface conditions. These conditions can include:

  • Wet floors
  • Icy sidewalks
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Spilled liquids

Additionally, certain careers put workers at higher risk of slip and fall accidents. These occupations include workers in the construction industry, housekeepers and other custodial staff, as well as chefs and other kitchen staff and factory workers. When a business or property owner fails to maintain their property or to warn visitors of potential dangers, they can be held liable when a person is injured as a result of their negligence.

Although a slip and fall can happen anywhere, especially at work, some other places where a slip and fall may occur include:

  • Stores and restaurants
  • Theaters and movies
  • Swimming pools
  • Nursing homes and assisted living facilities

These examples are only a small sample of ways that people can be injured in a slip and fall accident. If you are uncertain about whether or not your situation gives you the right to compensation, we will be happy to help you understand your options during a case evaluation.

  • I was an UBER passenger and the car got rear-ended by a utility van. I called 1-800-HURT-511 since a friend dealt with them before and I was glad I did. My attorney was extremely professional and aggressive when necessary. He was transparent from the start and didn’t complicate things unnecessarily.

  • Great experience! The representative I spoke to was calm and collected and talked me through the first half hour after our car accident. My wife and I were pretty shook up, but he assured me that I wasn’t our fault and explained how to handle the situation. They even sent us reminders to make sure we went to all the appointments and stayed on top of our claim!

  • I highly recommend HURT-511! When the insurance companies turned me away after a scary scooter accident that nearly killed me, a lawyer at HURT-511 stayed and fought for me and recovered the entire policy! Their staff is well-informed and always available to answer my questions. They treated me like one of their own and I made the right decision to stick with them. Thank you so much!
