If you slip and fall in someone's home or place of business in Florida other than your own, you may have a case to file a slip and fall lawsuit. If the party who owns the business or residence you were injured in is found to be negligent, it could mean some financial assistance for your injuries and pain. Slip and fall accidents are "premise liability". Florida law is very specific these laws. Falls may sometimes not seem like a very serious event when they occur, but they can lead to serious injuries, arising weeks or months after the incident.
If you or a family member has been hurt in a slip and fall, it is essential to see a physician for a thorough diagnosis. If you need help paying for the medical bills and other damages, you may need to contact a personal injury attorney.
Most often, slip and fall accidents occur when an property owner or tenant fails to clean up a wet floor or mark or fix an uneven surface. Slip and fall accidents occur in many places including businesses, public property, and even private residences. A number of obstacles and hazards can cause a slip and fall accident, including:
•Unmarked wet spots
•Uneven floor mats
If you or someone you love has been injured by the negligence of others in a slip and fall accident, contact a personal injury attorney for help.
