Understanding Florida’s Slip and Fall Claims Process
Slips, trips, and falls can happen to virtually anyone, and in order to protect your right to a full and fair recovery, the slip and fall lawyers at the Shiner Law Group provide a list of steps slip and fall accident victims should follow:
Seek immediate medical treatment. Medical professionals can document the injuries you sustained as a result of the slip and fall. Forgoing medical treatment may not only worsen minor concerns but can damage a claim’s financial recovery potential.
Report your accident. Notify the property owner or the authorities and file an accident report form. Be sure to request a copy before leaving the premises.
Gather quality evidence.
Take photos or video of the accident site and any injuries sustained. Clothes and shoes should be preserved in their present condition.
Maintain accident records. Keep copies or receipts of all medical and slip and fall-related expenses, as well as any documentation received from insurance companies.
Decline to speak. Do not give recorded statements to insurance companies or sign any documentation without first consulting legal counsel.
Be wary of social media. Do not broadcast the details or pictures of your injuries on social networking sites pending a legal claim, as insurance companies may use this information to damage your case.
Slip and fall accident victims can bring a legal cause of action against an at-fault party, who breached their legal duty of care by failing to remedy the dangerous condition or provide adequate notice of its existence, within four years in the state of Florida, or two years in cases of wrongful death, for damages including, but not limited to, pain and suffering, medical expenses, periods of disability, lost income, and a permanent inability to engage in gainful employment.
