Injurifes from slip-and-fall accidents often costly, permanent

Property owners and managers in Tennessee and across the United States are responsible for keeping their premises free from hazards and safe for the public. Despite this, thousands of people are injured annually in slip\-and\-fall accidents. Such a fall on a hard surface like a wet floor, an icy sidewalk or an unkempt parking lot frequently results in serious injuries that require costly medical treatments. Perhaps even worse, sometimes the injuries are chronic or even permanent.

In another state, a couple has recently filed just such a premises liability suit, alleging negligence after the wife fell. The plaintiffs claim that the woman was injured when she slipped while visiting a medical facility in Sept. 2015. The lawsuit alleges that the woman had come to the Charleston Area Medical Center to see a patient.

While at the medical facility, the complaint states that the wife slipped on a wet area and fell to the floor. The fall allegedly resulted in injuries to her neck, head and back. As a result, she has suffered pain both physical and mental, and she has had to deal with medical expenses and loss of enjoyment of life. Additionally, the husband claims the fall resulted in his loss of spousal support services.

For these claims, the couple is seeking compensatory damages in addition to interest and all legal fees, as well as further relief as the court sees fit. Often, successfully litigated premises liability lawsuits are one of the only means available to victims of such accidents to get the funds necessary to pay for the medical treatments their injuries require. Luckily for residents of Tennessee, there are professional legal resources available to turn to for support and guidance in these types of cases.
