The Cost of Personal Injury

The Cost of Personal Injury

Sacramento Attorneys

A slip and fall in a public place can occur at the most unexpected moment and leave a person with both a bit of embarrassment and pain at the same time. The worst part is that the pain may stick around for a few days or weeks, depending on what was injured during the fall. One of the most common and irritating injuries that can happen is a bruised tailbone, which happens when a person falls on their buttocks.


The cost of the injury, on the other hand, can range anywhere from $200 to $400 and that’s not even including the medical care you receive. If you don’t have insurance, then the cost can quickly jump to $1,500 to $3,000, and this isn’t even counting the pain, suffering, and time off work you had to take because of this injury. However, there is hope.


If you’ve suffered from a tailbone injury because of a slip and fall while in a public place or private property, depending on your situation, you may be entitled to seek damages under premises liability. Call Law Offices of Russell Fields in Sacramento at (916) 529-4143 to schedule an appointment today.


The location of the slip and fall injury is detrimental to a premises liability case. For instance, a slip and fall injury can occur on any of the following:


  • • slipper or uneven walkways or pavement
  • • potholes or steep driveways
  • • slippery floors from oil, grease, water, or food on the floor
  • • broken stairs or unstable handrails
  • • tree roots
  • • wires or cords in the walkway
  • • badly constructed balconies and railings

At Law Offices of Russell Fields in Sacramento, our job is to seek full and adequate compensation for the damages and losses you incurred as a result of your injuries. This includes medical care, rehabilitation, lost wages, and even earning potential if your injury causes you the inability to continue working at the same job. Unfortunately, a bruised tailbone is not the only injury a person can suffer from a slip and fall. Other injuries include bone fractures to parts of the body such as the arms, legs, or back, back injuries such as herniated discs, bruised muscles, and dislocated ribs, and head injuries such as lacerations, concussions, or severe headaches. All of these injuries from a slip and fall can result in a large amount of money to be spent over time just to recover.


If you’ve suffered from a tailbone injury because of a slip and fall while in a public place or private property, depending on your situation, you may be entitled to seek damages under premises liability. Call Law Offices of Russell Fields in Sacramento at (916) 529-4143 to schedule an appointment today.
