Our El Paso Injury Attorney Protects You When Slips and Falls Occur
Slips and falls are one of the most common causes of personal injuries. According to the National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI), they account for millions of hospital emergency room visits each year. Even a relatively minor slip and fall can leave you with injuries that can cause ongoing impairments.
At the Law Office of Xochitl A. Ambriz, we provide the experienced legal guidance you need to protect your rights in a slip and fall accident claim. Common types of injuries suffered by clients we represent include:
- Soft tissue injuries, such as muscle or tendon strains, sprains, and tears;
- Broken bones and joint dislocations;
- Back and neck injuries, including slipped discs and fractured vertebrae;
- Head injuries, such as concussion and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Anytime a slip and fall occurs, you should report it to the property manager or security and get medical attention immediately. Not seeking treatment could result in serious complications, while jeopardizing your rights to compensation.
Slips and falls can occur in stores or in restaurants, at office buildings or apartment complexes, at work, on vacation, or in parks and other public settings. They are often the result of negligence on the part of property owners, managers, and employees in failing to maintain the premises or in failing to warn visitors that dangerous conditions exist. These types of conditions often include:
- Wet, slippery floors;
- Uneven floorboards and torn carpeting;
- Cluttered aisles and hallways;
- Uneven walkway or paving stones;
- Improper lighting or lack of handrails.
