Everyone knows someone who is walking around minding their own business when all of a sudden they slip and fall. It just happens; there is nothing in the way. The person feels silly and makes excuses like being clumsy when he or she gets up. They realize they are in a lot of pain.
Some people are clumsy but in most cases, there are other reasons for the fall. These include uneven sidewalks, unexpected or awkwardly placed steps, wet floors or steps, a floor mat that is not laying completely flat, or a hole or crack in the street, just to name a few.
It does not matter how old a person is; these falls can happen to any age person; you do not have to be elderly to fall. I always tell my clients and friends that if this happens to them, they should consult an experienced personal injury attorneyimmediately.
