Every slip and fall case is different, and the damages you can recover will depend upon the specific details of your situation. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be entitled to compensation for things such as:
If extreme negligence or a malicious act caused your injuries, you may be entitled to punitive damages. The state of Florida limits the punitive damages you can recover to an amount equal to three times the compensatory damages you were awarded or $500,000, whichever is greater.
There are four things that a personal injury attorney must prove in a slip and fall accident case. These are:
Slip and fall accidents can happen almost anywhere, but are most common in stores, parking lots, on stairs or escalators, hotels, places of employment, and state, federal, or municipal buildings. The causes can be highly polished floors, wet floors, uneven surfaces, stairs with missing traction strips, obstacles on the ground, poor lighting, and more.
It can be challenging to figure out exactly who is responsible for your injuries. If you were hurt in a store, it may be the store owner or the manager who is responsible. If you had an accident on the grounds of a mall or shopping center, there may be several owners under one roof that may share the responsibility.

There is a four-year statute of limitations to file a slip and fall case in Florida. That may seem like a lot of time, but it is important to get started right away. Forms get lost, witnesses move away, and security camera footage gets overwritten. For these and other reasons, it is easier to collect the information we need if we begin as soon after the accident as possible.
