Shoulders, Arms, Elbows, and Wrists Are the Most Commonly Injured Areas in Milwaukee Slip and Fall Accidents
It’s probably no surprise that shoulders, arms, elbows, and wrists tend to fare the worst in slip and fall accidents because most people try to catch themselves. Besides the expected bruising, slips and falls are the biggest cause of broken shoulders, arms, elbows, and wrists. When the slip is caused by negligence on the part of a property owner to maintain his premises, injured parties have a right to sue to recover their medical expenses.
The area of law that governs slip and fall accidents is known as premises liability. Simply put, property owners (or those in possession of the property) have a responsibility to keep the grounds safe for anyone on them. Cracks in the pavement causing an uneven surface, an unmarked wet floor in a grocery store aisle, unexpected obstacles on steps—these are just a few examples of situations which have caused slips and falls.
