If you slip and fall at a local business's establishment, you may wish to look into filing a claim. Fall is nearly here, and with winter just around the corner, there is an ever-growing risk of ice, rain and possibly snow that could cause slick conditions. Slip-and-fall accidents caused by weather are common, though they are most common in the Northeastern and Midwestern United States.
If you get hurt while you're at a sporting event, it's important that you know whether or not you can make a claim. If so, you may be able to get the money you spent on medical care and other losses back. If your child is hurt, this may apply to him or her also.
You were enjoying a fun day at the local waterpark with your friends when you decided to go down one of the larger slides. At the top, you noticed a few people creep close to the edge as they slid down, but you didn't think you'd actually go over.
A trampoline park is a fun place to go with friends and family, but it has the potential to be extremely dangerous. While most facilities take pride in maintaining their trampolines and eliminating hazards, accidents can still happen.
As Memorial Day approaches, many facilities are getting ready to open up their pools. Local friends and family members may have them and be excited about having a party with you invited. One risk that pools pose is the risk of slipping and falling due to water on the desk surrounding the pool.
Most of us have slipped and fallen at some point in our lives. Much of the time, these accidents result only in embarrassment, but other times, a serious injury might occur. This is problematic on both sides. The victim rightly feels he or she should receive compensation for injuries suffered in a slip-and-fall accident. The property owner probably feels he or she bears no fault in the accident.
We know you hear about it all time, but slip-and-fall accidents are more dangerous than many Indiana residents believe. As an example, we would like to remind you that actress Natasha Richardson died in 2009 after an outdoor slip-and-fall accident. Initially, she joked about her accident and seemed fine. What she did not realize was that she had suffered an epidural hematoma after striking her head in the fall. Ms. Richardson's injury was purely accidental, but that is not always the case for fall victims.
