Slip & Fall Accidents in Florida

Seek Experienced Legal Counsel from Our Miami Personal Injury Attorney

Many slip and fall accidents occur due to clumsiness or lack of attention. However, there are many other incidents that have been caused by a negligent property owner who knew about an issue and failed to properly address it, resulting in your injuries.

The following are common causes of slip and fall accidents:

  • Slippery or wet surfaces
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Raised or cracked sidewalks
  • Broken railings
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Unsecured carpets or rugs
  • Appliance or other cords stretched across a walking path

If you were recently injured in a slip and fall accident caused by negligence, you can file a premises liability lawsuit against the at-fault party to recover compensation to pay for medical expenses, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering. At Cardenas, Singer & Associates, our Miami personal injury lawyers can guide you through the complex legal process to help you obtain the monetary damages you deserve.

Florida Slip & Fall Accident Laws

Slip and falls apply to a wide variety of cause for injuries an individual may suffer when he/she slips, trips, and falls when encountering an unreasonably dangerous or hazardous condition on someone else’s property. Anyone injured in a slip and fall accident must file their lawsuit against the property owner within four years of the incident.

Most common examples of negligence in slip and fall cases include:

  • Failure to detect, clean, or warn others about customers or employers who have spilled or dropped something.
  • Failure to implement policies to prevent, detect, or warn of slippery surfaces.
  • Failure to inspect premises in a consistent, timely basis.
  • Failure to provide handrails and other accommodations.
  • Failure to maintain leaking appliances such as refrigerators and washers.

In order to succeed in a premises liability case, you need to prove that the property owner had an obligation to your wellbeing, the obligation was breached due to negligence or carelessness, and you suffered significant damages as a result of the accident. Florida’s “pure comparative negligence rule” will be used to determine your share of legal fault for your injuries, which means any damages award you receive will be reduced according to the percentage of your blame for the underlying accident.
