Slip and fall accidents in Georgia often occur unexpectedly, leaving no time for a victim to brace for a fall or avoid falling. Unfortunately, slip and falls in grocery stores frequently occur, leaving shoppers with painful injuries and the embarrassment of falling in public.
Some of the many types of injuries that victims of slip and falls suffer from are lower leg injuries, including:
- Hip joint injury, hip dislocation, hip fracture
- Thigh injury, thigh, muscle strain, femur fracture
- Knee injury, torn meniscus, ACL tear, MCL tear
- Calf injury, calf strain, torn calf muscle
- Ankle injury, sprained ankle, ankle fracture
- Foot injury, broken foot, foot strain
It is common for Coweta County slip-and-fall accidents to cause victims lower-leg injuries, such as ligament tears, muscles strains, fractures, and more. In fact, the foot, ankle, knee, and hip regions are some of the most commonly injured areas in slip and falls. It is critical for victims to see an orthopedic surgeon immediately after a slip and fall accident that caused lower leg injuries in order to receive proper treatment.
While most lower extremity injuries are treatable, medical costs for surgery and physical therapy can be extreme. Additionally, most victims with lower leg injuries are unable to work while they are healing, which can take several weeks, months, or more.
