Don't minimize your injuries and pain after falling accidents

After a slip-and-fall accident, it can be easy to feel like you should just get up, dust yourself off and move on with your day. After all, you might feel a little embarrassed and any pain you may be feeling might be dismissed as fleeting or minor. In some cases, you might be in a little bit of shock, making it even more difficult to accurately assess your condition.

However, before you decide to dismiss your accident and decide you can just deal with your injuries on your own, you would be wise to examine your options for a premises liability claim. Doing so could be the difference between recovery and a lifetime of pain.

Falling injuries have the potential to be very serious. As noted in this article from the Brain Injury Society, slip-and-fall accidents can result in:

  • Wrist or elbow fractures
  • Hip fractures
  • Traumatic brain injuries, including concussions¬†
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Shoulder sprains or tears
  • Knee pain
  • Whiplash
  • Herniated discs
  • Compression fractures

These injuries could be minor and temporary, or they could be severe and accompanied by chronic pain. In order to assess your condition, it will be critical that you seek medical treatment right away. Having a doctor identify injuries early on could improve the efficacy of treatment methods.

After speaking with your doctor, you can consult an attorney. If your injury was caused by someone else's negligence, you should not be the one to bear the financial burden, which could be significant in situations where your injuries are severe and/or chronic. Filing a legal claim can help you collect the compensation and accountability you deserve.

Fall victims should not be too quick to dismiss injuries after a slip-and-fall accident. They can be more serious than a person might anticipate, and ignoring them won't make them go away. In fact, it might only make them worse. With medical and legal support, however, it can be possible to contain the physical, emotional and financial damage suffered.
