Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents and trip and fall accidents can result in varying degrees of injuries. While some people may only suffer minor bumps and bruises, other people may suffer wrist fractures, ankle or knee injuries, hip injuries, head injuries or neck and back injuries in a slip and fall. These injuries can require extensive medical treatment, including physical therapy or surgical treatment in some cases, and may result in time away from work as you recover from your injuries.
Without proper attention to your slip and fall case, you may not be capable of recovering compensation for your medical expenses or lost wages. The law firm of Norman M. Block, P.C., in Hawthorne, New York, is available to answer your questions and help you determine if you are entitled to compensation.
