In many cases, slip and fall injuries are minor, and you don’t even miss work. However, sometimes falling causes severe injuries. If you land the wrong way, you can break bones or even suffer injuries to your spinal cord, neck, or head. These injuries might cause you to be out of commission for several weeks or even months or years.
Traumatic brain injuries can range from minor concussions to permanent brain damage. A minor concussion might keep you out of work for a day or two, but it could have repercussions later in life, especially if this isn’t your first concussion. Recent studies have found that chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease, affects some people who have suffered from previous concussions. In most cases, this brain disease affects those who have had multiple concussions, but some people may have symptoms of this disease after just one concussion. Unfortunately, doctors cannot say for sure that you have CTE based on symptoms and cannot accurately diagnose the disease until after your death. If you suffer a concussion in a slip and fall accident, you should ask your doctor about the chances of getting CTE later in life. Your doctor must look at your medical history, including the number of concussions you have had in the past, to make an educated guess. However, if the chances that you will later contract CTE are high, your slip and fall lawyer needs to know this so that they can incorporate this possibility into settlement negotiations or ask for future medical expenses during litigation. Concussions are not the only injuries that can cause long-term or permanent injuries or that can cause illnesses later in life. If you hurt your back, neck, or shoulders when you fall, you might suffer from long-term or permanent injuries, including paralysis. Some of these injuries may not present until hours or even days later, because of the adrenaline your body produces when you fall. Always seek medical attention immediately after a fall, then contact your attorney as soon as possible to help you file a claim, go through negotiations and, if needed, file a lawsuit.
