Fighting For Those Who Have Been Injured on Someone Else's Property Throughout Florida

Slip & fall accidents happen all the time and occur just about everywhere, from sidewalks to playgrounds to restaurants and amusement parks. While many people associate slip and fall accidents with minor injuries like bruises, sprains, or fractures, many accidents can result in serious injuries and sometimes fatalities, and sometimes, there is a person who can be blamed for it.

Property owners have a responsibility to keep their land and buildings safe and free of hazards for guests, visitors, residents, and more. If they are found to have failed this responsibility, they can be held liable for damages you may have accrued from your injuries.

Common Causes of Slip & Fall Accidents

An individual may be eligible to seek damages for a slip & fall accident when they fall and are injured as a result of dangerous conditions that a property owner should have been aware of and/or have fixed.

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), slip and fall accidents account for nearly 15% of all accidental deaths in the United States. A property owner doesn’t need to intentionally make their property dangerous to be held responsible for damages – often, property owners are not aware of the hazard in question. However, this doesn’t mean they’re exempt from liability. A few common hazards that can cause slips and falls include:

  • Surface conditions, including potholes, icy roads, loose rugs, torn carpeting recently mopped or waxed floors, uneven surfaces that lack warning signs, spilled liquids that haven’t been cleaned up, oil or grease that hasn’t been removed, and more
  • Ladders and stairs, which occur when there’s a lack of handrails or uneven/broken stairs, or when a ladder isn’t secured, or another piece of furniture is used instead of a ladder
  • Environmental conditions, including unsecured cords, poor lighting that can make paths and obstacles difficult to see, trash or debris on the floor, and open desks or drawers
  • Certain occupations, including the construction industry, where worksites involve a lot of ladders, machinery, and debris, and the food industry, which involves a lot of spills that can create sticky or slippery floors

Common Injuries from Slip & Fall Accidents

Some common injuries may include:

  • Fractures and Broken Bones: Falls may lead to fractures and broken bones, which can affect the victim's mobility and quality of life.
  • Head Injuries: Traumatic brain injuries and concussions can happen if the head strikes a hard surface during a fall, potentially leading to long-term consequences.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Severe falls can result in spinal cord injuries, impacting the victim's ability to move and perform daily activities.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Sprains, strains, and other soft tissue injuries are common in slip & fall incidents, causing pain and discomfort.
  • Cuts and Bruises: Minor injuries like cuts and bruises are prevalent in slip & fall accidents but should not be underestimated, as they can still significantly impact the victim's well-being.

Compensation for Slip & Fall Accident Victims

Potential damages could include:

  • Medical Expenses: This includes hospital bills, doctor visits, medication costs, rehabilitation, and any other expenses related to the treatment of your injuries.
  • Lost Wages: If your injuries have led to missed work and lost income, you may be eligible to recover these financial losses.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for physical pain, emotional distress, and the overall effect on your quality of life may be pursued in a slip & fall case.
  • Property Damage: If personal property, like clothing or electronic devices, was damaged during the fall, you may seek compensation for the replacement or repair of these items.
  • Future Medical Costs: In cases where long-term or ongoing medical treatment is necessary, we will work to secure compensation for future medical costs.
