Slip and Fall
Slip and fall cases happen when you least expect it. Whether you slip on a wet floor or trip on a broken sidewalk, the property owner or management company may be liable for your injuries. Under Florida law, property owners have a duty to maintain a reasonably safe environment for the people who are invited on the property. Being invited on the property can mean actually being invited over to your neighbor’s house or going into a store that is open to the public. If you are the victim of a slip and fall it is important that you act quickly to photograph and document the area that caused the accident and its condition. Property owners will act quickly after the accident to fix the problem, which means the evidence will be gone. The fact that they fixed the problem also cannot be brought up against them in court, which is why it is so important to get the evidence of the unsafe hazard before it is too late.
If you are injured on someone else’s property they and their insurance company may well be liable for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other costs associated with the accident. It is important to contact a slip fall attorney to make sure that your rights are protected. Your consultation with Cromey Law is free, so do not hesitate to pick up the phone and call.
