Types of Hip Injuries That Occur in Georgia Slip-and-fall Accidents

Most hip fractures occur from falling. While the elderly population is most at risk for suffering hip fractures in falls, anyone—no matter the age—can suffer a hip fracture and hip injury after a slip-and-fall accident. 

Some types of hip injuries that occur in slip, trip, and fall accidents in Georgia include:

  • Hip dislocation
  • Broken hip
  • Hip joint injury (labral tear of the hip joint)
  • Hip pointer injury
  • Hip flexor injury

With some of these injuries, surgery or even hip replacement may be required. Sometimes, nerve damage also occurs in fall-related hip injuries. Unfortunately, the costs associated with a Georgia slip and fall can quickly add up when surgery and physical therapy is needed. Additionally, if a person cannot return to work, she may lose income and be left swimming in a pool of debt.  

If torn carpeting, loose rugs, highly worn carpeting, or flooring defects contributed to a fall and, consequently, a hip fracture, a property owner or property possessor could be held liable for such injuries, medical bills, lost wages, and more. 

If someone else’s negligence caused your accident and injury, you need to make sure he is held accountable.
