Slip and Fall Injury

Tampa Bay and Saint Petersburg slip and fall lawyer Slip and Fall injury cases can be complicated. They cover a wide spectrum of accidents, from tripping to falls caused by holes or unsafe conditions. Under Florida liability law, property and business owners must keep their property in a reasonably safe condition. If you slip or fall and hurt yourself, there are certain conditions*, under Florida statutes, that must be met for you to claim negligence. That's where having a Slip and Fall Injury attorney can make a difference.

In a property negligence case involving personal injury the plaintiff must prove at least three things:

  1. The property owner or business had a duty of care to the injured party.
  2. The owner didn't exercise reasonable care in maintaining and operating the property.
  3. The injury is a result of the property owner's specific negligence.

Proving such negligence can be hard, but a professional slip and fall injury attorney has experience with property and personal injury law; they can help you navigate the complicated process, including providing proof and sticking to the statute of limitations.

If all possible negligible parties are not named in your case, you may get only part of the settlement you deserve. Also, Florida is a comparative negligence state, which means the court will decide how much at fault you may be for your own accident.
