Slip and Fall Accident?
Our Florida Premises Liability Attorneys Help Victims of Catastrophic Injury
Slip and fall accidents cause approximately 25 percent of all brain injuries and 22 percent of all spinal injuries, and they are the leading cause of catastrophic injuries for persons aged 45 and above.
People age 65 and older are at high risk for premature death resulting from the brain or spinal cord injury. When a slip or fall, car accident, truck accident, bike accident, or a swimming pool accident affects the brain or spinal cord, your quality of life sustains pronounced and devastating effects.
