Slip and Fall Accidents are More Common Than Car Accidents

Posted by Michael G. Butash | May 29, 2018 | 0 Comments

The most common type of personal injury case would have to be a car accident, but in terms of the most popular personal injury case, slip and fall accidents are the most seen. Sometimes when people are in a car accident, Wesley chapel residents do not report their accident or try to turn it into a personal injury case because they may have been the one who caused the accident, or the other party involved was not responsible. Slip and fall accidents on the other hand, are usually the direct result of someone else's negligence, unless someone lost their balance and fell and hurt themselves.

If Car Accidents are More Common, why aren't There more Court Cases?

Car accidents are definitely more common than that of slip and fall accidents, but a lot of these automobile accidents go undocumented for many reasons. Some people would rather have no proof that there was an accident because it is a guarantee that their car insurance will go up most likely. Also, with reporting car accidents, Wesley Chapel residents might have only gotten into a minor fender bender where it would cost less to fix it themselves instead of trying to take their case to court for monetary composition.

What is the Advantage of Reporting a Slip and Fall Accident?

Slip and Fall accidents are more commonly reported because in order for a slip and fall to be considered as a personal injury case, there has to be a significant reason. For example, it is not uncommon for someone to slip on a wet floor and break their hip. Medical bills for a broken hip are not cheap, and this is one reason why individuals report these accidents. Wesley Chapel residents who are in a car accident but do not reserve bodily injury do not have a good case for court involving personal injury.
