Although a slip and fall accident in Pennsylvania might only lead to a minor bump or bruise, this is not always the case.

Sometimes the result can be a serious injury, such as any of the following:
 

  • Hip fracture - this can cause immobility, severe pain and the inability to bear weight on the leg of the injured hip. Treatment may include surgery, physical therapy rehabilitation and medication.
  • Head injury - if you hit your head in a slip and fall accident, bleeding could occur in your brain, causing an intracranial hematoma. You might experience a worsening headache, confusion, imbalance, vomiting, mood changes or unconsciousness. Treatment for head injuries may include surgery, various medication and therapy.
  • Torn ligaments - if you tear your anterior cruciate ligament, for example, you might hear a popping sound and experience severe knee pain and swelling along with instability. Treatment for this type of injury often involves surgery and rehabilitation.

 

After you or a loved one has been injured in a slip and fall accident in Pennsylvania, you should seek medical treatment and consult with a Philadelphia slip and fall attorney. If it can be determined that the owner of the property where your accident occurred was negligent, you might be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses and pain and suffering.
