    Slipped or tripped in Washington

    Have you slipped or tripped in Washington?

    Fortunately, most people who have slipped or tripped in Washington whilst they’re out in public only hurt their pride! However, in some incidents, a simple trip or fall can result in very serious injuries indeed. One of the most dangerous types of injuries which can arise from this type of incident is a head injury.

    If you were to fall or slip and you were unable to put your hands out to break your fall, you could easily hit your head on the floor. Similarly, if you were to fall indoors, you could hit your head on something as you fall, such as a table or radiator. This can be very dangerous and even fatal so it is important that you receive emergency medical care to try and lessen the injury.

    Luckily most people who hit their heads simply suffer from concussion but others may experience a more serious brain or head injury. In addition to this, people can suffer from fractured or broken bones, muscle damage and even cuts and lacerations all from a simply fall.

    Due to the severity of the injuries which can be caused by a trip or fall, areas which are open to the public must be kept as safe as possible. This means that they must be repaired or closed if they are damaged or unsafe and that they must be maintained regularly to ensure their safety.

    Can I make a claim with injury solicitors in Washington if I’m hurt whilst out in public?
