There is no shortage of active things to do in Arizona — there’s golfing, hiking, swimming, skiing, and biking, just for starters. But injuries don’t just happen while we’re playing sports or participating in physical activities.
The personal injury attorneys at Negretti & Associates have seen cases of slip-and-fall accidents that have resulted from a variety of events. Falls can happen anywhere — at grocery stores, gyms, neighborhood pools, doctor’s offices, and resorts.
Although Arizona attracts “snowbirds” during the winter months, it’s not just the 55-and-older generation that experiences significant injury as a result of a slip and fall accidents.
“No matter the age, if a person experiences a slip and fall accident, significant trauma can be done to the body,” stated Jonathan Negretti, founder of Negretti & Associates. “Each slip-and-fall case is so unique and the injury to the victim can be lifelong.”
Common Slip and Fall Injuries in Arizona
The most common injuries from slip and fall accidents include:
- Head injury: Shattered eye orbital, road rash and concussions.
- Back and neck injury: Spinal cord damage, broken vertebrae, and slipped disc.
- Breaks and sprains: Arms, legs, ankles, and hips.
Many of these injuries require extensive medical treatment and aftercare. Unfortunately, some slip and fall accidents result in temporary or permanent paralysis, sometimes even death.
