Florida Slip and Fall Accident

a
$ 2,525,000

Recovered For Our Clients Car Accident Cases

After suffering from injuries sustained as a result of a slip, trip or fall accident, many people must receive medical treatment and sometimes surgery. Resulting in broken hips, head injuries, internal injuries, disfigurement and even death if the injured party is elderly, slip and fall accidents tend to be the most underplayed. Receiving the proper care yields medical bills and often requires missing work and lost wages. If the accident did not occur at work, they are not obligated to pay any wages as a result of your accident.

 

Like any accident where injury occurs, it is important to focus on healing and recovery. Sometimes that’s difficult to do when you are out of work and the medical bills come piling in. Many of our former clients have voiced the same concerns.

 

At The Umansky Law Firm, our attorneys have the experience and resources necessary to get you the compensation you deserve. Allow us to focus on handling your accident claim so you can focus on relaxing and healing.

 

 

Who is Responsible in Slip and Fall Cases?

 

One of the most frustrating facts to digest is that all of your pain and suffering could have been prevented if the property had been properly maintained. Failure to keep the property in a safe condition can make a negligent party a responsible party.

 

Parties responsible for your injury can include the property owner, manager, insurance companies or any other involved in creating the dangerous condition. A prime example would be, the floor or carpet cleaning company that failed to post signs warning of a wet floor or other dangerous condition.

 

Many dangerous conditions can cause a fall, such as poor lighting, unkempt property, foreign substances left or spilled on the floor, narrow stairs, wet floors, icy sidewalks, potholes, uneven sidewalks and faulty or lack of stair railings.

 

 

Requirements for Bringing a Slip and Fall Claim

 

For a successful slip and fall claim, your attorney must prove two requirements:

  • Your accident was caused by a dangerous condition on the property AND
  • The Owner knew about the dangerous condition

 

To show that the property owner knew of the dangerous condition, your attorney must establish:

  1. The property owner created the dangerous condition
  2.  The property owner knew of the condition and was negligent in failing to correct it
  3. The condition existed for a long enough period of time that a reasonable property owner should have discovered and corrected it.

 

 

How Much is My Case Worth

 

When the responsible party breaches their duty to provide a reasonably safe environment to you or a loved the property owner is liable for damages. An injured party, lawfully on the property of another, may receive compensation for the following damages:

 

  • Victim’s medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages or income
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
