Hollywood An Uneven Floor
An uneven floor can mean the risk for a trip and fall accident in Hollywood or another community. When this occurs at home, it can be upsetting. When it occurs in a business, such as a restaurant, however, it can be a serious legal matter. Property owners and business owners have an obligation to keep their premises safe for patrons and employees alike. When they fail to do so, you may have a premises liability claim in Hollywood or your community.
If you have tripped on an uneven floor in a private business or on public property and believe you may have a claim, contact Flaxman Law Group to find out what your legal options may be. Your case may be worth more than you think and your medical expenses may be more than you realize. Speaking with an experienced personal injury attorney can help you review your options so that you know what you should do in your situation.What Causes Uneven Floor Accidents?
There are many reasons why people trip and fall on uneven floors:
- Companies do not hire enough staff to properly maintain a property
- Businesses do not check their property regularly or fail to respond to dangerous situations
- Uneven floors are not fixed promptly or are not labeled with signs
No matter why this type of accident occurs, it is often preventable with proper maintenance and diligence. If you have entered a property legally – because you have been invited or because it is implied that you can enter – and you trip on an uneven floor, you may have a legal claim.Injuries Caused by Uneven Floors
Many people who fall just bruise their egos, but a trip and fall accident can lead to serious injury, including:
- Head injuries
- Broken hips
- Facial injuries
- Dental injuries
- Eye injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
These types of injuries can be permanent or can take months to heal. In the meantime, you may be unable to work or you may need to get medical treatment for your injuries. The costs can quickly mount, and unless you pursue a legal claim you may have to pay these costs out of your own savings. If you are injured in a traffic accident in Hollywood, you may be able to turn to your insurance company for compensation. In the case of a trip and fall accident, a legal claim may be your best option for compensation.
