If you are injured while visiting someone else’ property, you might have what is constantly referred to as a “slip and fall” case. A slip, trip, and fall case is a type of premises liability claim. Property owners have a legal obligation to provide a reasonably safe environment to people who are lawfully on their property. When they fail in this duty and someone i injured, the property owner is liable for damages, including the victim’s medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages or income, disability, and disfigurement. Property owners are responsible for the safety of those who pass through their premises. This means they need to clean up spills, provide well-lit walkways, prevent elevator accidents, and put up signs warning of any potential hazard. According to Florida premises liability laws, the property owners may be held liable for any injury caused by unsafe conditions on their premises. A Florida slip and fall accident attorney can build a lawsuit against the property owners and get compensation for injuries resulting from unsafe premises. Injuries commonly occur at parking lots, restaurants, supermarkets and shopping malls. Inside a building, dangerous conditions such as torn carpeting, abrupt changes in flooring, poor lighting narrow or poorly maintained stairs, or a wet floor can cause victims to slip, fall, and become seriously injured. Outside of a building, victims may slip, trip, and fall because of a hazard such as a pothole.
If you suffered serious injuries from a slip and fall or assault on someone else property, you may have a premises liability claim. The attorneys at Weller Legal Group, Inc. are here to lend their experience and knowledge to your case.
