Injured after a fall? Take legal action now!
Florida law requires both residential and commercial property owners to uphold certain safety standards on their premises. If they do not amaintain the property they own, visitors can get hurt, and serious injuries can occur. Owners are not responsible for all accidents that occur on their property, but if you were injured in a slip-and-fall accident because of their negligence, you may be able to recover significant monetary damages in a premises liability claim!

Causes of Slip-and-Fall Injuries
Injuries that result from slip-and-fall accidents can be painful, necessitate costly medical treatment, and may never fully heal. You do not deserve to bear the full cost of the consequences of someone else’s mistakes! Sometimes people trip due to their own clumsiness, and that is an accident; but sometimes there are unfavorable conditions that cause people to fall, and that is legally classified as negligence. The floor may be slippery, or wet. There may be an obstruction in the walkway. There could be poor lighting that led to limited visibility, a lack of policy enforcement, an uneven walkway, etc. If something was amiss that led to your fall, you may have a case to make a premises liability claim or suit for costs related to back, neck, head, pelvic, and other injuries. The Florida Law Group knows that a slip-and-fall injury can be a major life interruption. Our attorneys can help you to understand your legal options and guide you through each step of the claims/suit process!
Seeking Compensation for Slip-and-Fall Injuries
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your slip-and-fall injury, you may be entitled to seek compensation. However, these types of cases can be challenging, because your attorney will need to prove that the property owner or employee caused the dangerous condition that led to your fall; that the property owner or employee knew about the dangerous condition but failed to correct it; and that the property owner or employee should have known about the dangerous condition because any reasonable person taking care of their property would have discovered the condition and solved the issue.
If all of those can be proven, you can seek costs in a settlement related to:
- Ambulance rides
- Imaging tests (X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, etc.)
- Hospital stays (overnight, multiple days)
- Doctor & specialist visits
- Therapy and rehabilitation
- Medical devices (crutches, boots, wheelchairs, casts, etc.)
All of these items can add up to be hundreds of thousands of dollars These costs are known as economic damages and also include things like lost wages (money lost due to taking time off work to recover from your injury). However, non-economic damages can also be sought in a settlement – these are intangible costs like pain and suffering that are designed to compensate victims for physical discomfort and emotional distress they endured as a result of the fall.
Besides just being expensive, a slip-and-fall injury can keep you from exercising, doing activities you love, traveling, taking care of yourself, engaging with your family and friends, and more. That is why it is important to have an experienced local lawyer on your side who has a winning track record in slip-and-fall injury accident cases and will advocate for your best interest!
