Common New Jersey Slip, Trip, and Fall Injuries

By Lependorf & Silverstein on April 4, 2016

In our experience there are a number of different injuries that tend to follow such accidents. The following are just a few examples that a New Jersey slip, trip, or fall victim may encounter:

Compound and Simple Fractures – While it does take a great deal of force to break a bone, at the right angle anyone can cause a smaller fracture. Slip, trip, and fall accidents tend to cause damage around sensitive spots like the wrists, ankles, and ribs.

Abrasions and Lacerations – A serious fall almost always leaves some sort of bruising or cutting. Depending on the type of surface landed upon or the objects struck on the way down, a person can end up with serious skin damage.

Nerve Damage – It is not uncommon for trip, slip, and fall victims to suffer numbness or tingling in the days, months, and years following their accident. The location of the trauma can even extend overtime, causing serious issues with coordination.
