Premises liability: Seeking justice after a slip-and-fall accident

| Sep 10, 2020 | Uncategorized

When many people in Florida hear that someone has fallen, they may be quick to dismiss the incident, thinking that a simple fall is unlikely to cause significant harm. Unfortunately, that is not the case for many victims. Often, a slip-and-fall accident can cause serious injuries that can impact a person’s ability to support and care for him or herself and require a significant amount of medical interventions.

Those who suffer a fall can experience a wide range of injuries. These include brain injuries, injuries to the neck, back and spinal cords as well as fractures of the wrist or hip, among others. In some cases, these injuries are debilitating or require an extensive period of recovery.

Some of these falls occur as a result of a property owner’s negligence. Owners are required to provide safe property conditions for those invited onto their premises. If an owner causes a property hazard or should have known about a hazard and fails to take action, he or she could be held financially responsible for any injuries a person suffers in a fall caused by the hazard. Hazards that could potentially cause a slip-and-fall accident include cracked or broken sidewalks, floors that have been mopped or waxed recently with no warning signs posted or liquids that spilled in the aisle of a grocery store.

When a person is injured in a slip-and-fall accident in Florida, they may find themselves swimming in medical debt and unable to work while they recover. Because cases involving accusations of premises liability can be difficult to bring on their own, victims in Florida frequently turn to the law firm of Vocelle and Berg. Our years of experience can help victims pursue fair compensation by filing a civil lawsuit against parties deemed responsible for injuries.
