We Handle All Types of Florida Slip-and-fall Cases
The Florida slip-and-fall lawyers at the Landau Law Group understand how frustrating it can be when you lack the resources to get medical treatment or even pay your living expenses due to an injury that was not your fault. The good news is that you do not have to face this situation alone.
We help those who suffered slip, trip, and fall injuries because a property owner or manager failed to maintain a safe environment. Some common causes of premises liability injuries include:
- Loose mats and rugs
- Loose cables and cords
- Cracked or broken sidewalks
- Crumbled or pitted asphalt
- Spills, leaks, and accumulated liquids
- Unmarked curbs and steps
- Missing or damaged handrails
- Inadequate lighting
Our legal team begins by investigating the circumstances of your case to determine who had fault. We demonstrate the at-fault party’s liability and detail the economic and non-economic damages you suffered.
In most cases, we can negotiate a settlement and fair financial compensation with the at-fault party’s insurance company, so you never have to go to court. Or, if necessary, we will file a civil lawsuit and fight for you in court.
Whatever we have to do to help you obtain justice and recover financial compensation, the Landau Law Group is here for you in West Palm Beach.
Establishing Fault & Proving Liability for Your Slip, Trip, and Fall Injuries
Our legal team evaluates the evidence in your case to identify the party who caused your slip-and-fall accident. To prove liability, we must demonstrate the following:
- Duty of Care – The property owner or their designated representative owed you a duty of care to provide an environment free from hazards. Or, if hazards were present, they had an obligation to provide clear warning.
- Breach of Duty – The property owner or representative either failed to maintain the property properly or failed to warn you of a potential hazard.
- Causation – As a result of this breach of duty, you slipped, tripped, or fell and sustained injuries, making the at-fault party liable for your actual damages.
- Actual Damages – Actual damages are the documented physical, emotional, and economic damages you suffered as a result of your accident.
We demonstrate this portion of your claim using information and evidence such as:
- Witness statements
- Accident reports
- Medical records
- Surveillance video
Accident scene reconstruction specialists and safety experts may also provide testimony to support your case.
