Don't let compensation slip away after a slip-and-fall accident

If you have ever experienced a fall in a public place, you know how painful and embarrassing it can be. You may assume that the fall was the result of your own clumsiness or inattentiveness, but in reality, you could be the victim of factors beyond your control. After any type of slip-and-fall accident, you would be wise to take the appropriate steps to learn about your options.

Often, slip-and-fall accidents happen because Florida property owners do not take proper care of their premises. Whether your accident was the result of slippery floors or other preventable hazards, you have the right to seek compensation for your pain and suffering.

Preventing slip-and-fall accidents

Not every incident is preventable, and not every slip-and-fall accident is grounds for a civil claim. However, there are times people suffer unnecessarily because of hazards that of which the owner should have been aware or taken care already. When you visit stores, public places, businesses or even private property, you have the right to expect a reasonable degree of safety.

Who is at fault for your accident?

If you believe that you are the victim of a slip-and-fall accident caused by preventable reasons or negligent maintenance, you have the right to seek compensation for your pain and suffering. However, actually claiming compensation is not always an easy process. You must be able to prove at least one of the following elements:

  • The property owner should have been aware of the conditions that led to your accident.
  • The property owner did know about the hazards but had not taken measures to fix the issue.
  • The property owner, manager or an employee caused the hazards.

You may be unsure of where to begin or how you can build a strong case after a slip-and-fall accident, but you do not have to navigate it alone. It is beneficial to reach out for help and learn about legal options as soon as possible after you suffered injuries.

Obtaining the compensation you deserve

You may not have been able to avoid the slip-and-fall accident that caused you harm, but you can do something about your recovery. You have the right to seek compensation for your injuries, medical bills and other accident-related injuries.

If you believe that you are the victim of the negligence of another person, such as the owner of private or public property where you suffered injuries, you have the right to take legal action. Your recovery is important, and you have no time to lose in learning about the appropriate measures you can take.
