Common types of injuries resulting from slip and fall accidents

When you fall, you can injure almost every part of your body. Injuries range from scrapes and bruises to broken bones or worse. Common types of slip and fall injuries often occur to:

  • Your arms, including your hands, wrists, elbows or shoulders (when you attempt to catch yourself from falling)
  • Your ankles, knees and hips (which can be sprained or fractured in a fall)
  • Your head (a back, spine or brain injury may result when it strikes the floor)

Whatever your injury, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. When it is time to consider your legal options, The McGarity Group, LLC is fully prepared to assist you.
