A slip-and-fall accident can cause a traumatic brain injury

It is unfortunate that slip-and-fall accidents occur with great frequency. This type of incident can result in the victim suffering a number of serious injuries, possibly including a traumatic brain injury. Arizona residents who have been hurt in slip-and-fall accidents may be entitled to seek compensation for any resulting losses they have experienced.

Slip-and-fall accidents can happen just about anywhere and for a number of reasons. It does not matter if it occurs on private or public property, owners can be held responsible for any damages sustained by the victim if they were aware of the potential hazard and failed to correct the issue or provide adequate warning. Common causes of slip-and-fall accidents include:

  • Oil or grease on floor
  • Exposed power cords
  • Loose or torn carpeting
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Poor lighting

While many slip-and-fall accidents result in fairly minor injuries, when head injuries occur, the consequences can be quite serious. The full extent of a head injury is not always immediately apparent, so some individuals may refuse to seek treatment right away. However, if one experiences symptoms of a brain injury after suffering a blow to the head, it is wise to seek medical attention immediately. Common symptoms of possible brain injuries include:

  • Headaches
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Memory loss

A traumatic brain injury can have long-lasting effects. Those in Arizona who have suffered such an injury due to another person's negligence may have legal recourse. A personal injury attorney can help victims file and litigate legal claims in civil court in an effort to seek compensation.
