Florida Slip and Fall Attorneys
Property owners, property managers and commercial business owners are bound by law to keep their premises safe for visitors. Unfortunately, some don’t live up to that responsibility. Each year, thousands of people slip and fall on someone else’s property in Florida. These accidents can have devastating consequences.
We have represented hundreds if not thousands of people who have been injured as a result of a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident on another person’s property or at a place of business.
“Slip and fall” injuries and “trip and fall injuries” are the most common type of accident that occurs in a store or business. Most disturbing, however, is that most of these accidents could have been easily prevented with the correct amount of inspection and maintenance by the store owners and employees. The most common causes of slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall injuries are:
- Slippery or wet floors
Uneven, cracked sidewalks
Objects such as food items or debris on the ground
Negligently stacked display shelves
Broken or cracked tile/flooring
Bulky, wrinkled carpets or rugs
Problems with automatic doors or elevators
Oil spills in parking lots
Unsafe product displays
- Pot holes in parking lots
At The Trial Professionals, we have seen the high price of property owner negligence. Slip and fall accidents can result in serious injuries, long hospital stays, costly treatment, lifelong physical pain, and even wrongful death. That’s too high a price for any victim to pay.
Business owners have a responsibility to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. As such, we believe businesses should routinely inspect their floors for debris, spilled liquids, and other slip-trip hazards. We also believe that businesses should promptly, clearly, and obviously warn unsuspecting customers of any dangerous conditions until they are cleaned or repaired.
If you or a loved one has experienced a Florida slip and fall accident due to property owner negligence, the law is on your side. But the law is not enough. You also need an experienced attorney who will relentlessly pursue justice on your behalf. While The Trial Professionals can’t make property owners provide a safe environment, we will make sure they are held fully accountable for their actions.
