If you suffered injuries to your back, neck, or spine in a Tampa fall on someone else’s property, your fall may have been preventable. A Tampa back and spine injuries lawyer from Distasio Law Firm may be able to help you collect proof and build a case against the property owner or another party who failed to prevent your Hillsborough County, Florida, fall injuries.
Property owners and occupiers must remove all hazards as soon as possible. Failing to do so leaves them liable for any injuries that occur. If we can build a case showing the property owner knew about the hazard that triggered your fall, or that they reasonably should have known about it, you may be able to hold them financially liable and recover compensation for your damages.

Back and Spinal Cord Injuries Are Possible After Any Type of Fall
Falls generally occur due to one of three factors:
- A lack of traction
- An object or other hazard left in the walkway
- A broken or missing railing, broken handrail, or hazard on the stairs
Any of these falls can lead to back and spine injuries, depending on how far you fall, how you land, any previous injuries or conditions, and other factors. According to Mayo Clinic, a spine injury may result in any of the following, either as an immediate symptom of an injury or as a lasting sign of the damage done:
- Intense pressure or pain near the injury site
- Stinging pain or other intense nerve-related sensations
- Loss of movement below the injury
- Change in sensation or loss of sensation
- Issues with bowel and/or bladder control
- Painful spasms
- Reduction in or other changes in sexual functioning
- Difficulty breathing
