Understanding Slip and Fall Accidents
Claimants can pursue a personal injury legal cause of action against a negligible residential or commercial property owner for injuries sustained in an accident that could have otherwise been avoided.
Florida law requires property owners to maintain their premises in a safe and reasonable manner, devoid of hazardous conditions that pose an increased risk of bodily harm to an individual who could not, or would not, have anticipated their existence.
When a property owner fails to make necessary repairs, provide notice, or remedy dangerous conditions on their premises, severe and life-threatening injuries can occur.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), slip and fall injuries, which fall under the umbrella of premises liability cases, are among the leading causes of death in the United States.
In a slip and fall legal proceeding, it is important for victims to understand the type of fall encountered.
For instance, a slip and fall occurs when an individual’s footing loses traction with the ground, whereas a trip and fall occurs when an individual’s footing meets resistance.
While the verbiage has subtle differences, it directly affects your claim’s financial recovery potential.
Common Causes of a Slip and Fall Accident
Individuals have a reasonable expectation to be free from hazardous conditions when entering residential or commercial premises; however, when dangerous conditions persist, victims can suffer a broad range of injuries, including, but not limited to, bruising, broken bones, internal organ damage, back injuries, head injuries, and wrongful death.
While hardly an exhaustive list, the slip and fall lawyers at the Shiner Law Group identify some common scenarios attributable to a slip and fall accident:
- Uneven or damaged flooring.
- Unsafe stairwells or railings.
- Water accumulation.
- Foreign objects, as well as debris and clutter.
- Inadequate warning signs.
