Slip and Fall / Premises Accident: Back, Neck, or Spinal Injuries

Injuries to the Spine are Common in Slip and Fall Cases

According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Association (NSCIA), slip and fall accidents are responsible for causing 22 percent of all U.S. spinal cord injuries each year. Damage to the central, anterior, posterior, side or tip of the spinal cord can result in partial or complete loss of sensation and movement at the location of the injury and below.

In addition to loss of sensation and movement, a spinal cord injury victim may suffer from multiple complications, including bowel dysfunction, bladder dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, breathing difficulties, stiffness of limbs, nueropathic pain, muscle atrophy, osteoporosis, gallbladder stones, and the inability to regulate blood pressure, heart rate and body temperature.

Do You Have a Strong Case?

The answer to one key question which will tell us a lot about whether you have a strong case for compensation:

Was the property where the injury occurred in a dangerous/hazardous condition during the time of your injury, and thus, responsible for your injury?

The Most Common Causes of Spinal Injuries in Our Slip and Fall Cases

Traumatic spinal cord injuries can happen almost anywhere a building or land is host to dangerous conditions. Faulty elevators or stairs, slick floors, cracked sidewalks and blocked pathways are just a few examples of dangerous conditions that can result in a severe fall-related spinal cord injury.

Dangerous conditions can exist in numerous environments. Unsuspecting visitors can be injured while shopping at a retail store, walking to the pool at a hotel, visiting a friend’s home, taking the stairs at school, parking a car in a garage or while dining at a restaurant. Fall-related spinal cord injuries may also be the result of an act of violence or a vicious dog attack.
