Arizona slip and fall accidents can happen just about anywhere: the grocery store, the shopping mall, the community pool, work, the gas station, or even your favorite vacation hotel. Many people believe that slip and fall incidents lead to sprained ankles and broken wrists, and while this may be true, falling can also lead to a host of other serious injuries, up to and including death. Some of the most common types of injuries that can be suffering in a slip and fall accident include:
- breaking your tailbone or pelvis;
- spinal cord injuries;
- head injuries including a concussion or cracking your head open;
- broken bones including your wrist, arm, leg, ankle, etc.; and
- other serious injuries that may lead to paralysis or even death.
What Should You Do If You Have an Arizona Slip and Fall Accident?
If you experience an Arizona slip and fall accident, you should do everything you can to create a very long paper trail proving that you were injured. Seek medical attention, get the business where you fell to fill out an accident report (easy if you fall at a large chain store where this is required), and even try to take pictures if you are able. Accident victims who are able to take eyewitness statements and contact information will also find that things are much easier down the line, especially if they decide to file a lawsuit. The most important thing you can do, however, is get the medical attention you need and let the provider know exactly what happened so your fall and injuries are clearly documented.
