In the United States, more than 33 million people each year suffer some sort of injury, whether it be physical or mental. Every person has the right to receive monetary compensation if they suffer some type of fall, slip, or dog bite in a public place.
Some examples are as follows:
Injuries and Falls
In 2012 in Philadelphia, a woman who was visiting a shopping center slipped due to a freshly mopped floor with no warning sign. The victim suffered a fractured pelvis and injured her elbow; she reported the accident immediately and was transported by ambulance. One of our participating attorneys assisted her in every step of the way and she was provided medical attention, which was covered by the establishment. Rehabilitation therapy was also approved for her so she could achieve complete recovery.
In Santa Monica, California, in 2015, a boy was playing around a fence and went in and out through the slats several times near a pit bull. Suddenly, the dog attacked the child, wounding his leg and tearing part of the muscle. Immediately, the boy’s father called an ambulance and called the animal control department. The boy received care and financial remuneration.
