Jacksonville Slip & Fall Lawyers

Backed by Proven Results in Settlements & Verdicts

Slip and fall accidents and injuries occur every day across the U.S. affecting millions of people and their families. While these accidents may result in only minor injuries, they can also lead to injuries that rise to the catastrophic level and even to death.

They are especially devastating and more common in older individuals. Where these slip and fall accidents occur on the premises of private, commercial, and public properties and are caused by negligent maintenance, they fall under “premises liability.”

This can make property owners and managers responsible to accident victims for the damages resulting from preventable injuries. After sustaining injuries on another’s premises, you may wonder if your case qualifies under premises liability law.

You may be facing:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages/income
  • Pain and suffering
  • And more

Our firm has decades of practical experience in seeking maximum compensation for those who have been injured due to negligence. We have built a strong reputation for legal proficiency and client care.

Slip & Fall Injury Cases in Florida

Not all slip and fall injury cases will qualify for claims made against the property owner. Just because you fell on a private or commercial property does not necessarily mean that the owner or manager was negligent.

What needs to be established for a viable personal injury claim is that:

  • A hazardous condition existed on the property that the owner/manager knew about or should have known about due to regular maintenance
  • That the unsafe condition was ignored or warnings were not provided
  • And that it caused your accident and injuries, which led to your specific damages

Under premises liability law, property owners owe any permitted visitors to the premises a “reasonable” duty of care in providing a safe environment. Where this is violated, they may found negligent and thus accountable for your damages.

These damages may include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost income or wages
  • Emotional distress
  • And more depending on your case

What Are Considered Unsafe Conditions?

Examples of unsafe conditions that could trigger slip and fall injuries can include:

  • Slick, oily, or slippery floors
  • Torn carpets or cracked or broken floor tiles
  • Undetectable debris in aisles, pathways, or corridors
  • Lack of or poor lighting
  • Potholes
  • Uneven sidewalks or other walkway surfaces
  • Extension cords strung across walking areas
  • Unsafely stacked overhead objects that can fall and strike anyone below

How To File a Slip & Fall Claim

Backing up your claim with evidence is crucial. In any slip and fall accident, you must first identify what caused you to fall.

You should:

  • Take pictures of this cause as well as the surrounding area
  • Get the contact information of any witnesses and report your fall to the manager or owner of the premises to get a written record
  • Get medical attention and photograph and document your injuries (this will be needed to prove that you were injured)
  • Attend all doctor appointments related to your injuries
  • Finally, keep the shoes you wore during the incident; these will be evidence that your fall was not due to defective footgear
