¿Cuántos Casos de Resbalones y Caídas van a Juicio?

01/15/21

Los accidentes de resbalones y caídas pueden afectar su salud en más maneras de las que se imagina. Las consecuencias de una caída pueden variar de dolores y moretones, a fracturas, lesiones en la cabeza, o incluso muerte.  Y una vez que se ha caído, ¡sus chances de volverse a caer se duplican!

Las caídas ocurren con bastante frecuencia, con más de tres millones de personas que buscan tratamiento por este tipo de lesión en las salas de emergencia cada año. Si ha estado involucrado en un accidente de resbalón y caída, el mejor lugar para comenzar es con un abogado calificado y con experiencia que tenga amplio conocimiento de casos de resbalones y caídas para ayudarlo a navegar el proceso.


¿Dónde suceden los Accidentes de Resbalones y Caídas?

Los accidentes de resbalones y caídas pueden suceder en cualquier parte. Los dueños de propiedades pueden ser responsables por accidentes de resbalones y caídas si no proveen mantenimiento apropiado a su propiedad. Las cercas pueden tener grietas, las superficies pueden estar rotas o desniveladas, o pueden estar resbaladizas. Las escaleras pueden ser muy inclinadas o muy angostas.

Los estacionamientos son un lugar común donde ocurren resbalones y caídas.  Deben hacerse reparaciones para mantener superficies donde se camina o sube/escala, de acuerdo con los códigos de construcción. Los restaurantes y bares pueden presentar peligros, especialmente considerando que los clientes deben navegar alrededor de sillas y mesas.

Los ascensores y escaleras mecánicas también pueden ser peligrosas. Las estaciones de servicio (gasolineras), supermercados, y almacenes son otros de los lugares donde puede ser fácil caerse debido a derrame de comidas o líquidos.

¿Va ir Mi Caso de Resbalones y Caídas a Juicio?

Puede ser un poco abrumador el pensar acerca de tener que formalmente testificar en una sala de audiencia judicial en frete de muchas personas. A menudo, las víctimas de accidentes de resbalones y caídas no reciben la justicia que se merecen porque temen el proceso.

Es posible que se sienta aliviado de saber que solo un pequeño porcentaje de estos casos terminan frente a un jurado.  Si le preocupa que su caso vaya a juicio, discuta las opciones con su abogado.  Un abogado con experiencia, a menudo será capaz de negociar un acuerdo en estos casos para que un juicio no sea necesario.

Sin embargo, asegúrese de contratar un abogado que esté dispuesto y pueda ir a juicio si el dueño de la propiedad no está dispuesto a pagar una compensación razonable por sus lesiones.


¿Cuánto es un Acuerdo Promedio en Casos de Resbalones y Caídas?

Es difícil calcular un valor promedio de los casos de resbalones y caídas, porque cada caso es único.  Los acuerdos pueden variar desde unos pocos cientos hasta muchos miles de dólares, y muy raramente, hasta millones. Muchos factores contribuyen al valor de un caso de resbalón y caída; los factores más importantes son dónde y cómo ocurrió la caída, la severidad de las lesiones sufridas, y el tratamiento médico buscado.

De acuerdo al CDC, se gastan más de 50 billones de dólares cada año en costos médicos relacionados con resbalones y caídas no fatales. Como víctima de un resbalón y caída, tiene derecho a una compensación no solamente por gastos médicos, sino también por pérdida de salario, dolor y sufrimiento.

¿Puede Ocurrir una Lesión Cerebral Como Resultado de un Resbalón y Caída?

El CDC reporta que las caídas son la causa más común de Lesiones Cerebrales Traumáticas TBI. Un TBI puede ser devastador, no sólo por los efectos persistentes, si no también porque puede no ser fácilmente detectado al principio. Es a veces, difícil reconocer un TBI de inmediato, y mientras más tiempo pasa sin diagnosticar, más difícil es de tratar con una alta posibilidad de recuperación.

¿Se Pueden Prevenir los Accidentes de Resbalones y Caídas?

Los accidentes de resbalones y caídas son un problema de salud pública común y costoso. Si las personas y empresas se tomarán el tiempo y responsabilidad de mantener sus propiedades en buen estado de mantenimiento, reparación, y limpios, muchos accidentes de resbalones y caídas podrían ser prevenidos.

Los accidentes de resbalones y caídas pueden sucederle a cualquiera, en cualquier momento, a cualquier edad.  Si bien la población de mayor edad es más susceptible, no son solo los ancianos los que pueden sufrir una caída.  Cualquier persona puede sufrir una lesión grave y devastadora por un accidente de resbalón y caída.

Alex Casas and his team knew just the right approach for my suit and handled it with tact and care. Alex is one of the nicest lawyers I've met - no ego-- no pontificating -- no showing us how important he was. Alex got right down to business, with a smile on his face, and completed our claim quickly, achieving the results we wanted. Thank you, Alex, Susie and Staff.

"A steady, reassuring and calming voice when you need it most." Alex Casas and his team are great. My situation was very complicated since I was dealing with a number of insurance companies and multiple hospital bills! The team at Casas Law worked with all the various factors and made everything seamless as well as keeping me informed the whole way. I would not have known how to maneuver the insurance waters so I was very glad that Alex was there for me. I would highly recommend Casas Law, Alex, Susie and the whole team.

Alex and his team were my rock after I was hit by a car while riding my bike. They were able to direct me with medical care questions, advocate on my behalf with insurance companies, and really listen on days where I had pain and was completely frustrated with my insurance company and their lack of response. Highly recommend!!!!

Alex Casas was referred to me by a friend who spoke highly of him and his work. As I met with him I quickly realized my friend was right. He was knowledgeable, personable, truthful and had my family's best interest. His compassion and patience before, during, and after my case sets him and his staff apart from other law offices. Those qualities are hard to come by. When you hire him you will find for yourself.
