Attorney for Slip and Fall Victims in Milton, WV
Slip and fall injuries may occur just about anywhere, which is why a property owner or business is responsible to remedy dangerous conditions. The smallest spill of liquid on a tile floor can result in a slick spot that becomes hazardous. Properties should have accessible walkways that are free from spills, ice, and obstacles that can cause tripping, slipping, or stumbling. If a person sustains a significant injury from a slip and fall incident, the property owner may be sued under premises liability law. The victim must prove the owner’s knowledge of, and intentional disregard for, the hazardous condition in order to establish liability. There are a number of circumstances that can cause serious injury, and you can review your questions by consulting with our attorney.
Hatcher Law Offices Represents Victims of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur when a significant blow to the head happens from a violent impact. The brain sustains injuries in a number of ways, and an injured person may display a variety of symptoms. It is best to seek medical attention as soon as possible. While we may be able to see an external injury, closed head wounds can be just as damaging to brain tissue. Closed head injuries can occur when the head is moving forward and is either stopped abruptly or whips backward. The brain bounces off the inside of the skull because of the sudden change in momentum. Bruising, bleeding, and tearing of the soft brain tissue can all result from TBI. These serious dangers can result in symptoms that require on-going care and may affect daily activities. If you suspect you or a loved one may have sustained a TBI, seek medical attention immediately.
What to Do in Case of an Accident Involving Injury
Call for help. Ask anyone at the scene of the accident to contact the police and rescue squad.
Get witnesses. Get names, addresses and phone numbers of persons at the scene that may be able to provide details of the accident at a later date, if necessary.
Exchange Information. Before leaving the scene of an accident, exchange insurance information with the other parties involved in the accident. If possible, take photos of cars, placement, damage, conditions, or other important visual items.
Leave the scene. Unless medically necessary, you should remain at the scene of the accident until the police have arrived and completed the accident report.
Move any injured persons. Only trained personnel should move anyone injured from the accident.
Assume anything. Some injuries may not be apparent directly after an accident, so don’t hesitate to see your doctor for a complete check-up.
