Effects of Premises Liability Injuries
Accidents such as slips and falls are fairly common in grocery stores, shopping malls, and other similar establishments. Such an accident can happen almost anywhere, though. Water, oil, or other substances on the floor, unsecured carpets, and walkways that have not been properly cleared after snow and ice accumulation can all cause an accident. Some accidents can result in less severe injuries, such as a sprained or broken bone. However, these circumstances also have the potential to result in serious injuries, including brain and spine injuries.
In such cases, it is the burden of the injured party to prove the property owner was negligent.
Injured parties face the financial burden of mounting medical expenses, which is increased by the inability to work, either temporarily or long-term. Serious injuries can result in irreversible damage, including cognitive and/or physical disabilities. Such disabilities can require a lifetime of professional care, in addition to the need for modifications to the home and vehicle to accommodate medical equipment such as a wheelchair.
