Proving Liability in a Slip and Fall Personal Injury Claim
Many slip and fall accident victims falsely assume that if they are injured on a residential or commercial premises, the property owner assumes full responsibility; however, as personal injury claims are adjudicated under the state’s negligence standard, claimants must satisfy the following criteria:
- Show the injuries sustained occurred as a direct result of the hazardous condition’s presence on the property;
- Show the property owner was negligible in maintaining the premises in a safe and reasonable manner;
- Show the hazardous condition was present on the property for a considerable period with no adequate warning of its existence.
Identifying Your Slip and Fall Accident
There are two types of slip and fall accidents: same-level and elevated. Same-level injuries, while more common, are often less severe than elevated falls, which can result from tumbling down a flight of stairs or dropping from a ladder.
In either case, victims can suffer from a broad range of injuries that may require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation: broken bones, bruising, internal organ damage, back pain, joint pain, and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).
To receive the strongest financial compensation available under Florida law, it is important to understand the type of accident you were involved in, as using the proper information is crucial for building a compelling claim.
Under Florida law, slip and fall accidents occur when a victim’s footing loses friction with the ground, resulting in a person’s loss of equilibrium. In a trip and fall accident, resistance, such as an exposed wire, causes a victim to sustain injuries.
