Sounded in Negligence, “slip and fall” and “trip and fall” cases can be difficult to prosecute in Florida. A slip and fall injury is often the result of the property owner’s negligence. In Florida, a person injured from a slip and fall accident will likely face the “Open and Obvious Doctrine” which may bar, in whole or in part, your claim. Also, beware the law of Comparative Fault! What is needed to overcome these barriers, is well-documented evidence of the dangerous condition. For example, evidence that the owner knew or should have known of the dangerous condition and did nothing, is some of the evidence we seek to collect prior to prosecuting a claim of this sort. We urge you to consider hiring an experienced attorney who knows the best way to prosecute the claim to recover compensation, or “damages” for you, such as ourselves.
Many times, conditions on another’s property can be unreasonably dangerous and may not be readily known to you. If you have been injured on another person’s property or even a business, you really should speak with an experienced attorney.
If you are a party to a slip and fall or have been hurt on another’s property, feel free to give us a call. As always, our initial consultations are free.
