Fall Down Injuries
The first reaction of most people who fall is to feel ashamed or embarrassed. They may even blame themselves. But often times, the fall is caused by the negligence of the property owner or business. For example, a slip and fall can occur due to a spill that is not cleaned up by a store owner. Or a fall may occur due to a stairway that is not maintained in good condition. Sometimes, a fall can occur due to poor lighting or the absence of a handrail. Our office frequently uses engineers and other experts to determine the cause of the fall.
