What are common slip and fall injuries?

Whether it’s a slip on a wet floor or a trip and fall on uneven pavement, injuries are often serious. Some slip and fall injuries require minimal medical treatment and time off from work, while others require surgery and other extensive medical care. Such injuries often include:

  • Bone fractures
  • Sprains and strains
  • Bruises and contusions
  • Dislocations
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Spinal injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Head injuries

How do I get compensation for a slip and fall?

In most cases, injury victims can take legal action against the property owner in a slip and fall case. But such cases can be extremely complicated. Property owners may deny any wrongdoing. And many insurance companies are reluctant to pay injury victims. That's why it's critical that you have the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone on your side, protecting your rights.

We’ll investigate your Boston slip and fall, build a strong case, and negotiate for a fair settlement on your behalf. If we can’t reach a settlement, we can file a slip and fall lawsuit and fight for maximum compensation before a judge and jury. Your injury claim or lawsuit should include money for all your injury-related expenses, including financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering linked to your slip and fall.

What are the average slip and fall injury settlement amounts?

The average settlement amounts for slip and fall injuries can vary by injury severity, medical expenses, wage loss, and pain and suffering. For minor injuries, settlements often range between $10,000 and $50,000. However, more severe injuries often result in much higher settlement amounts. Never assume you know how much money your slip and fall settlement is worth. A slip and fall lawyer can accurately determine how much money you’re eligible for and fight to recover every dollar owed to you.

"What should I do after a slip and fall accident in Boston?"

If you or a loved one sustained a serious injury in a slip and fall accident in Boston, we strongly urge you to take the following steps:

  • Seek immediate medical attention. If necessary, go to Massachusetts General Hospital or another nearby medical facility in Boston. Even if you feel fine, you could have a life-threatening internal injury or traumatic brain injury. Having a medical record of your injury can also erase any doubts about the severity of your accident.
  • Have someone take photographs immediately of the accident scene. If you wait too long, the property owner might fix what caused your injury and then deny there was ever anything wrong.
  • Talk to witnesses. If someone saw your accident, their testimony could be critical to you winning your case. Get the person's full name, phone number and address.
