Most of us go about our days without worrying about receiving an untimely injury. While injuries are rare, they do unfortunately occur. Injuries can take place at any time of the day while performing any activity. Here is a list of injuries that might befall someone on any given Sunday.

Broken Wrist

Slipping and falling in public is something that everyone has experienced. No matter how many hours you’ve logged walking, you’re still susceptible to a slip and fall here and there. When we do fall, we typically brace ourselves with our hands pointed towards the ground to break our fall. An unexpected fall may easily lead to a broken wrist or worse.

Should an accident such as this occur due to a property owner’s negligence get in touch with an Evansville, Louisville, Indianapolis, or Owensboro-based Premises Liability Attorney.

Spinal Cord Injury

Sundays are for football games with family and friends. Even though you thought you were only playing touch football your friend decided to get a little physical with you. One strong tackle, an awkward landing later, and the football game have been cut short due to a possible spinal cord injury.

Damaged Hand

On any given weekend you’ll no doubt find dogs abounding in parks and streets around town simply enjoying a pleasant stroll with their owners. We’ve grown accustomed to not asking owners for permission to pet their dogs. Most of the time this custom only results in puppy fawning, however, occasionally an eager stranger will receive a nip on the hand. If this happens, you may want to get in touch with a Dog Bite Attorney.

Back Injury

The older we get, the more often we tend to complain about back pain. However, such pain can be exacerbated due to a Sunday morning car accident. Always be aware of the cars around you while driving and if you feel as though you’ve been wronged consult with a Car Crash Lawyer.
