Jensen Beach Slip And Fall Lawyers
Slip and falls are among the many gags in the arsenal of comedy, from the unsuspecting buffoon slipping on a banana peel to animated characters tripping on foreign objects. In fact, the action of a slip and fall is so commonplace; it evokes mockery in entertainment media. The consequences of a slip and fall, however, can indeed be severe.
Slip And Fall In The Workplace
Data collected by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) indicates that slip and falls account for 15% of all accidental deaths in the workplace, and are, apart from being one of the foremost causes of death in the United States, the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) in the country.
Employers, property owners, and businesses in Florida have a legal obligation to not only protect guests, patrons, and trespassers from dangerous conditions present on their property but to properly warn individuals and take the steps necessary to remedy the dangerous condition.

How a Shiner Law Group Attorney Can Help
While the causes of slip and falls are virtually numerous, there are two basic categories, as defined by Florida law, that a slip and fall will be classified in a legal proceeding: same-level and elevated. Same-level falls are much more common in nature, but elevated falls have the potential to inflict far greater injury. Regardless of the classification, slip and fall accident victims are most likely to experience injuries to the head, back, hip, and shoulder, all of which can require immediate medical attention and prolonged rehabilitation.
Don’t Be Taken Advantage Of
Slip and fall injuries, like all injuries, cause undue physical, emotional, and financial hardships, which are further exacerbated when insurance companies enter negotiations. Insurance companies and their agents will seek to take advantage of unrepresented parties, which makes the legal guidance of an experienced slip and fall accident attorney an absolute necessity.
