SLIP AND FALL
Owners of property, whether they are homeowners or business owners, have a duty in the state of Florida to keep their premises in reasonably safe condition to prevent visitors from being injured in slip and fall accidents. If you are injured in a slip and fall accident due to negligence, you are entitled to recover the full amount of medical bills and lost earnings in the past and future.
The injuries in a slip and fall case can be devastating. Many times, injuries suffered in a slip and fall accident can be more severe than those suffered in an auto accident. It is not uncommon for a fall to cause bone fractures or torn ligaments. Many times elderly persons suffer fractured hips in falls.
In any kind of premises liability case, it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible to investigate quickly and preserve evidence. It is also important for you to save all the evidence related to the fall. This includes shoes and clothing that may have oil or other substances from the fall. You should also photograph any injury immediately after the fall and when there are any changes, such as swelling or bruising.
