Types of Premises Liability Cases that May Result in a Slip and Fall Brain Injury

Slip and falls are the most common injury-causing accidents — even more common than traffic accidents. They are also an extremely common reason for premises liability claims since every year they result in millions of serious injuries and a great many deaths. All property owners owe a “duty of care” to those who come to their property, meaning that the law requires them to provide a safe environment to visitors. 

For this reason, if you have slipped, fallen, and suffered a brain injury because of a property owner’s negligence, you are legally entitled to damages. Following are some of the ways property owners may have violated their duty of care, resulting in the slip and fall that caused your brain injury:

  • Not shoveling or deicing walkways, stairs, or sidewalks
  • Failing to repair broken tiles, rugs, or carpeting
  • Leaving unseen obstacles on floors or steps, indoors or outdoors
  • Failing to clean up, mark, or cordon off slippery surfaces
  • Failing to repair broken stairs or banisters, fill in holes, or mark unexpected single steps
  • Failing to repair buckling or pitted sidewalks
  • Failing to properly light indoor or outdoor areas 

If you have fallen and sustained a brain injury for any of the above reasons, Compass Law Group has your back. We are well-prepared to fight hard and long to obtain the resources you need to help you and your family maintain financial independence.

Slip and Fall Brain Injuries Result in a Broad Range of Symptoms

During a slip and fall, you may suffer a concussion (an injury in which your brain bangs against your skull), a skull fracture, or even penetration of the skull. You may also be facing a brain injury that has resulted in swelling of brain tissue, bleeding on the brain, or a blood clot — any of which may require brain surgery. Symptoms you may have to cope with short-term, long-term, or even permanently include:

  • Headaches, confusion, lightheadedness
  • Memory loss or cognitive impairment
  • Blurred vision or even loss of vision
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Sensitivity to light or sound
  • Difficulty with balance
  • Seizures
  • Sleep disorders
  • Irritability, anxiety, mood instability, or depression
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

At Compass Law Group, we will offer you not only excellent legal representation but empathy as well. We know that you are going through one of the most frightening and difficult periods of your life and we are committed to seeing you through.

Unfortunately, the Most Vulnerable Victims Often Suffer the Worst Damage

Older individuals or people with disabilities are too often the ones whose slip and falls result in brain injury since they more easily lose their balance and may have slowed reflexes that make it harder to avoid hitting their heads. The elderly are also more likely to have osteoporosis so their bones, even their skulls, may be unusually fragile.
