Slip, Fall, and Trip and Fall Accidents Don’t Always Happen Without Cause
Every year in the United States, more than a million people head to the emergency room as a result of slip and fall accidents. In folks over the age of 65, slip and falls are the leading cause of traumatic death. When you have a slip and fall accident, it can be embarrassing, painful, and expensive.
Some of the worst slip and fall accidents result in permanent disability or wrongful death lawsuits. Slip and fall attorney, Michael R. Herron is committed to representing you in a personal injury accident and getting you the just compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Believe it or not, slip and fall, and trip and fall accidents don’t always happen without cause. You didn’t fall because you weren’t paying attention, or because you are clumsy. In most instances, falls happen because someone else was negligent.
With personal injury cases, it’s imperative that your lawyer is able to prove to the court that the accident wasn’t your fault, but it happened because the property owner was negligent.
For a slip and fall case to be successful, an attorney must demonstrate that there was a “dangerous condition” taking place on the property and that the property owner should have taken reasonable measures to address and remedy the situation. Your slip and fall lawyer will also have to prove that the property owner should have been aware of the situation, and done something about it before anyone had a chance to be injured.
A dangerous condition is determined when an aspect of the property presents an unreasonable risk of harm to anyone on the property and is an avoidable hazard. For example, a spilled drink on a drugstore floor that no one has attended to or marked as a potential hazard would be considered a dangerous condition, since it is not supposed to be there and the danger of it is not expected nor apparent.
Your Tampa slip and fall attorney must also demonstrate to the court that whoever owns the property where the injury occurred didn’t act in a reasonable manner. A reasonable property owner is one who takes the necessary steps to fix potentially hazardous conditions with a property so that no one risk getting injured. A negligent property owner would not take the steps to fix potentially dangerous issues with their property.
In slip and fall cases, your attorney will ask you the following questions to determine if you have a viable case under Florida personal injury law:
Additionally, it’s possible that the property owner was actually in violation of building or city codes – which can significantly help your case.
Personal injury laws are governed under strict statutes of limitations. What this means is that you only have so long to file a lawsuit after an injury occurs. In Florida, you can file a slip and fall lawsuit for up to four years after the date of the injury. Once the fours years is up, you cannot file a lawsuit.
It’s important to speak to an attorney soon after you are injured. If you wait too long, you can forget crucial aspects and details of your case that can hinder your attorney’s ability to get you the compensation you deserve.
