Need a Tampa Slip and Fall Lawyer?
Slip and fall injuries are a form of premises liability accident that occur on another’s property due to negligence in maintaining and repairing hazardous areas of the property. It is quite easy to slip and fall on an uneven walkway, a wet floor or a poorly lit stairwell. When the property owner fails to follow through with repairs in a timely fashion, fails to put up a sign warning of potential danger (as in the case of a wet floor) or fails to properly inspect his/her property for potentially hazardous situations, this may mean that you can bring about a personal injury claim in order to get compensation for the injuries you have suffered.
Working with a skilled lawyer who is familiar with slip and fall accidents and how they relate to personal injury claims and laws in Florida is your best bet if you would like to have a chance of receiving fair compensation for your injuries. If your lawyer cannot secure a just settlement for you out of court, he or she will need to take an aggressive stance in litigating your case in trial in order to ensure that the responsible party is held liable for their action or inaction. Slip and fall injuries may occur due a number of hazards:
- Poor lighting
- Uneven walkways
- Broken or uneven stairs
- Wet floors or slippery floors
- Swimming pool safety neglect
Common Injuries That Will Arise From a Slip and Fall Include:
- Back injuries
- Fractures and broken bones, such as hips, arms, ankles, tailbones
- Spinal injuries
- Bruising and soreness
