Causes Of Slip-And-Fall Injuries

If you have ever slipped and fallen, you understand that it is not that difficult to do. This is truer when the walking area is littered with hazards. In our humid Florida climate, moisture and wet weather can be an added danger, creating slippery surfaces. People who are already in a vulnerable physical state – such as seniors and those with preexisting injuries or disabilities – are more prone to falls. They also tend to suffer more serious injuries as a result of such falls.

A premises liability claim is a type of personal injury case that holds property owners responsible for injuries and/or damages caused on their property due to negligent actions that cause or allow unsafe and hazardous conditions. A successful premises liability claim that involves a slip-and-fall accident will require you to prove that the property owner was negligent by not adequately addressing known hazards and/or failing to maintain their property in a manner that leads to a relatively safe environment for visitors and/or customers.

In many cases, it takes an experienced attorney to prove the merits of your case to the insurance company or court (if necessary). Though your injuries may be apparent and their effects severe, you will still need to effectively prove that the accident was the fault of the property owner and not due to your own mistakes that could have been avoided. Steve can help you build a strong case to help maximize your compensation.
