At the Shiner Law Group, our award-winning slip and fall accident attorneys understand these injuries are serious matters and are committed to holding at-fault parties accountable for their negligible activity.
If you or your loved one has been injured in a slip and fall accident, contact our experienced Pompano Beach slip and fall lawyers to discuss your legal rights and options, as you may be entitled to financial compensation.
Understanding Florida’s Slip and Fall Accident Claims Process
Florida property owners have a legal duty of care to reasonably maintain their premises in a safe manner and can be held liable when a deviation from that duty of care exists. Claimants-invitees, licensees, and trespassers-can bring a slip and fall legal cause of action against an at-fault property owner within four years in the state of Florida, or two years when wrongful death is involved, for damages including, but not limited to, pain and suffering, medical treatment and rehabilitation, disability, lost income, and a permanent inability to engage in gainful employment.
In a slip and fall legal proceeding, Florida courts classify injuries as same-level or elevated: same-level accidents are more common, whereas elevated falls can inflict greater injury, such as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), back pain, joint pain, broken bones, and disability. Claimants must show that the property owner was aware of the unsafe condition, failed to properly remedy it or provide notice, and that the unsafe condition directly caused the injuries sustained.
Note: An unsafe condition exists when an unreasonable risk of harm is present, and a slip and fall accident victim would or could not reasonably anticipate its existence.
Florida’s slip and fall laws are constantly changing, which makes securing the legal representation of an experienced Pompano Beach slip and fall accident attorney vital to recovering financial compensation.
