Gravel & Shea Personal Injury

Slip & Fall

Slips and Falls are among the leading causes of injuries in the United States and account for approximately 8.9 million emergency room visits each year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one out of five falls results in a serious injury, and the average hospital cost for a fall injury is over $30,000.

SOME OF THE MOST COMMON INJURIES FROM FALLS INCLUDE:

  • Fractures or broken bones (particularly hip fractures for older individuals)
  • Traumatic brain injuries (concussions)
  • Sprained/strained muscles and torn tendons or ligaments
  • Neck, back and spinal cord injuries
  • Dislocated shoulders

At Gravel & Shea, our experienced attorneys have represented many people who have been injured because of unsafe or improperly maintained properties. Some personal injury cases involve temporary conditions such as an unsafe accumulation of snow or ice or the careless failure to keep floors clean. Other premises liability cases involve poor building designs or a lack of necessary maintenance—or even the failure to warn visitors of a known danger.

We accept these personal injury cases when we think we can prove that our client was injured because the person responsible for the property was at fault.
