Slip and Fall Accident Attorneys: Slip and fall accidents are common especially in the hard winter months. Most slip and fall accidents occur during this time because of the cold weather, snow, ice and freezing rain. However that does not mean slip and falls are not a year round concern. Every day, people fall because of pot holes in unpaved parking lots, uneven pavement on sidewalks, old neglected stairs and hand rails, spills in department stores and restrooms, crowed dance floors and restaurants, along with many other variable situations. The personal injury attorneys at Gill and Chamas have seen all types of cases where their clients have either tripped or slipped due to the negligence of someone else. These accidents often lead to broken bones, torn ligaments and head injuries.
An example of one of the firms Slip and fall settlements includes:
A singer agreed to accept $2 million to resolve her suit over injuries to her back and wrist in a slip and fall. The 42-year-old Grammy winner, a Jackson resident was injured while performing at a venue in Union. Her slip and fall lawyer, Raymond Gill Jr. of Gill and Chamas in Woodbridge, says the room was crowed beyond the fire code limit, causing waiters to carry trays of food across the dance floor. While walking across that area, the plaintiff allegedly slipped on liquid, landing on her hand and fracturing her right wrist. When she tried to stand up, she fell again, landing on her tail bone and herniating a disk. The plaintiff had surgery to repair her wrist and fusion surgery on her back and she was also diagnosed with reflex sympathetic dystrophy in the wrist, says Gill. Although she has resumed performing, she is no longer able to dance and play percussion as before, he adds.
