Liability for Slip and Fall Claims
In a slip and fall claim, the owner or tenant of the property where the slip and fall occurred may be held responsible for the damages you have endured as a result of your accident, including your medical bills, lost time at work, pain and suffering, and more.
Most often, slip and fall accidents occur when a property owner or tenant fails to clean up a wet floor or mark or fix an uneven surface. Slip and falls occur in many places, including businesses, public property, and even private residences.
A number of obstacles and hazards can cause a slip and fall accident, including:
- Unmarked wet spots
- Uneven flooring
- Poor lighting
- Insufficient handrails
- Uneven floor mats
Holding Negligent Property Owners Accountable
Our Orlando lawyers can help you recover damages via a slip and fall lawsuit. To do so, you must show that the injuries you suffered are the result of a slip, trip or fall, and were caused by an unreasonable risk, condition, or element that the property owner or manager failed to warn you about or correct. Throughout the course of your case, our attorneys will be available to answer questions and provide guidance on your claim.
If your slip and fall occurred on public property or at a business, you may be able to hold the property manager or property owner responsible. If the fall occurred at a private residence, the insurance company may cover your claim.
