We Identify All Responsible Parties and Pursue Them for Damages
In a slip and fall accident, one or more parties may be financially liable for your injuries. Whether your accident occurred at a private residence, a business, a public park, or even in your own home, another party may be responsible, even if you do not realize it. For that reason, it is a good idea to have an attorney investigate your injury and the circumstances surrounding it.
Here are a few of the most common types of slip and fall accidents.
Commercial Property Injuries
Commercial properties include businesses such as malls, shopping centers, retailers, and grocery stores. Under Florida’s premises liability laws, owners and managers of commercial property have a duty of care to all customers and guests of the property.
If a hazardous condition emerges, it is the owner or manager’s responsibility to address is quickly and, in the meantime, to warn guests of the issue and shield them from danger.
Here is a common example. A warehouse worker in a grocery store is transporting a stack of water cooler jugs. They accidentally tip the dolly, causing one of the jugs to crack and water to spill over a large area of the floor. In that situation, management must address the situation quickly, roping off the area, posting signs, and keeping customers away until the area is safe.
If they fail to do so, they may be held liable for your injuries.
Residential Property Injuries
Residential properties include houses, apartments, and condominiums. Premises liability laws also apply to the owners and managers of these properties.
For example, if a handrail comes loose on a stairwell at an apartment complex, the property manager must ensure the problem is quickly fixed and rope off the area in the meantime.
If they fail to fix the issue or notify residents and guests of the danger, they may be held liable for injuries.
