A slip and fall accident can result in serious injuries that cause permanent disabilities. Head, neck and spinal cord injuries are common in slip and fall accidents as are fractures and broken bones. A fall can be a painful injury that disrupts your life and causes thousands of dollars in medical bills and lost wages.
In most personal injury claims, another person or a company is the party responsible for the injury. For example, if a driver turns left in front of you when you have the right of way, that driver is liable for any damages resulting from a collision. Likewise, if a product causes an injury due to a defect, the manufacturer may be liable for damages.
It happens in the blink of an eye. You are running errands, taking the children to school, or going to work. Your thoughts are on the day ahead of you or what you need to do when you get home when suddenly another driver crashes into your vehicle. Many people are in shock in the moments following a car accident, even a minor fender bender.
Dealing with medical bills after an accident can be frustrating and stressful. You need medical care, but you don’t have the money to pay medical bills. If you are seriously injured and out of work, paying for expensive medical treatments such as surgery, physical therapy, and rehabilitation may be impossible.
