Shreveport Slip and Fall Accident Lawyer
When an individual slips and falls, the injuries that were incurred as a result may not be seen or felt for a day or two, or even longer, after the accident. The embarrassment one may feel after slipping and falling often causes them to brush it off and say they are fine, even when they aren't. The adrenaline that courses through one's body when they fall or become injured may suppress the pain and cause the individual to believe they are fine, when there could be serious injuries, including closed head injuries, broken bones or worse.
