Have you ever noticed a puddle while walking through a store and thought to yourself, “Hmmmm, this could be dangerous.”
Perhaps you have and just simply walked on. What would have happened if you had not noticed the puddle and slipped? Even a simple slip can cause trauma to the neck, low back or head. Here are some injury symptoms you should be aware of:
Weakness, numbness and tingling of the arm, hands and fingers and loss of strength indicative of a disc injury to your neck area
Weakness, numbness and tingling of the buttocks, legs, feet and toes, and loss of strength indicative of a disc injury to your back area
If you experience any of these symptoms, it is very important that you be seen by a medical professional right away. Avoiding being seen and properly diagnosed by a medical professional may leave your injury to go untreated and cause the injury to worsen and cause permanent damage. After a slip and fall accident it is important to be aware of any of these symptoms as they can arrive days after. Injuries are very common during any episode in which trauma is experienced by the body. Falling down can be very traumatic on your body.
These kinds of injuries are very common when one falls on an area that is dangerous and not properly maintained, and often cause the victim a great deal of damages and losses. When the cause of someone falling down on another’s premises is due to the negligence of a the owner of the property in failing to keep the property safe, the owner under our law can be liable in damages for needlessly causing others injuries, losses and damages that could have been prevented if the owner had taken even the most basic maintenance and cautionary steps to make their property safe.
Your main concern after an accident should be your immediate safety. Once you have established this, it is important to seek compensation for damages caused by the negligent act of the business owner, so that you are not saddled with large medical bills, lost wages and injuries for which you should not have to bear the cost.
