Florida Slip and Fall Injury

Thousands of people are injured every year because of hidden hazards on property or because of flagrant dangerous conditions that property owners fail to correct.

Thousands of slip and fall accident victims are eligible to make these claims every year, after suffering injuries caused by property owners who failed to use reasonable care to warn of hazards or remove dangerous conditions from their property. A knowledgeable Florida Injury Attorney in the Slip and Fall Injury Claims subject will assist you to successfully litigate these cases.

Property owners and businesses have a duty to provide a safe environment and if they fail to do so, and someone is injured as a result, they may be held liable for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. A skilled Florida Attorney in the Slip and Fall Injury Claims area will fight for you.

The following are some of the dangerous conditions that can cause injury and may be the basis for a slip and fall claim:

  • Standing puddles of water
  • Uncleared snow
  • Clear ice
  • Black ice
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Defective flooring
  • Improperly secured mats
  • Stairways and steps that violate building safety codes
  • Hidden drop-offs
  • Concealed holes

An Experienced Florida Attorney in this field will advance the costs and expenses necessary to successfully litigate these cases.

To prove a claim, the victim must prove that the dangerous condition on the property was directly responsible for the fall and subsequent injury. As an example, a storeowner may have failed to remove snow from the sidewalk but to establish the owner was at fault it must be shown the snow caused the fall. The successful claimant also will be able to demonstrate that the injury suffered was caused by the specific Slip & Fall incident. A knowledgeable Florida Personal Injury Attorney in the Slip and Fall Injury Claims subject will assist you to successfully litigate these cases.

An important issue in a Slip & Fall case is whether the victim was "invited" by the property owner to enter the premises. A business customer is understood to be invited by the owner and therefore must be given a high duty of care. The landowner must inspect his business site for defects periodically to identify and eliminate any risks to customers.

A business owner is expected to take reasonably prompt action to remove defects, eliminate hazards, or post warnings about the existence of a hazard or defect. Failure to do so can constitute negligence. An Experienced Florida Injury Lawyer in this topic will fight and fight and fight for you.

A property owner has a lesser duty to a licensee. A licensee is someone with limited permission to enter the property, such as a meter reader, mail carrier, newspaper carrier, social guest, firefighter or police officer.

A property owner has a limited duty of care owed to a trespasser. There are obligations, however, if the trespasser is a child or if the property owner set a trap for a trespasser.

The doctrine of "comparative negligence" often applies in slip and fall cases, and that generates another set of issues to be explored by legal counsel. The comparative negligence standard looks whether the victim had a legitimate reason to be at the place where the hazard existed, if a careful person could have observed and avoided the hazard, if any warnings existed, and if the victim was distracted. A professional Florida Personal Injury Attorney in this field will advance the costs and expenses necessary to successfully take legal action for you.
