Slip and Falls
A slip and fall is one of the most common AND one of the most dangerous types of accidents that could befall you or a loved one. In Florida alone, more than one million injuries and 17,000 wrongful deaths occur each year as the result of slip and fall, and trip and fall accidents. The elderly and disabled are most susceptible and are most likely to incur the most serious injuries from slip and fall accidents.
If you or a family member has been injured as the result of a slip and fall accident, you have the right to be compensated for your losses. Medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and future earning potential due to long-term or permanent injuries resulting from a slip and fall are all losses that you have the right to be compensated for. Lawsuits can be filed against negligent owners of the property on which the accident occurred.
Common causes of slip and fall or trip and fall accidents include poor lighting, wet or slippery surfaces, loose carpeting, loose railings or no railings and cracked or uneven walkways. These are safety measures that negligent property owners overlook that result in an enormous amount of injury.
If you or a family member has been injured in a trip and fall accident, contact an attorney as soon as you can. Be sure to document the scene of the accident, as well as your injuries and the resulting medical procedures.
