Be careful as you rush around Raleigh

We have all more or less grown accustomed to the hectic pace of modern life. We rush from our Raleigh homes to jobs and then off to stores and businesses after work and then for parents, off to schools or after-school activities and often much more before heading home again. It is always important, even in the constant rushing around, to remember to proceed carefully as we hurry in and out of businesses as part of our daily rush to get everything done.

Far too often, stores or the properties on which the stores sit, contain hazards that can cause patrons and visitors to slip and fall and suffer painful injuries.

Of course, no one receives a warning before a slip and fall occurs. These spills take place in an instant, typically leaving the person on the business floor or sidewalk or parking lot and in pain.

Some of the most common injuries sustained in a slip and fall include the following:

  • Head injuries: all head injuries, including those that appear minor, should be treated by medical professionals who can determine if your injuries are serious. Even if you feel OK after a fall that involves a blow to the head, get immediate treatment. Traumatic brain injuries can produce symptoms that don’t appear until hours or even days after the fall. And they can have lasting effects requiring sustained medical treatment.
  • Shoulder injuries: if you have fallen directly on to your shoulder, you can sustain painful injuries that can, in many cases, require physical therapy or surgery. These kinds of falls can also involve injuries to arms and hands used to try to break the fall.
  • Back injuries: another painful, common type of injury in slips and falls. Fall victims can sometimes suffer a herniated disc in these types of incidents.
  • Hip injuries: especially perilous among older people, a hip fractured in a fall will typically involve surgery and long-term physical therapy.

No matter your age, if you have been hurt in a slip and fall in a Raleigh business, get medical attention to determine the extent of your injuries. You also have the right to pursue compensation with the help of a personal injury attorney when you are hurt on someone else’s North Carolina property.
