Common slip-and-fall accident injuries and potential legal rights

On Behalf of | Jan 27, 2024 | Personal Injury |

When venturing out to public places, many here in Florida may take their safety for granted. Unfortunately, there can be a multitude of potential injury threats — from those that are somewhat visible to nearly unseen ones — at certain locations and venues. This sadly results in far too many slip-and-fall accidents where victims suffer injuries and harm through no fault of their own.

Grocery stores, shopping malls, restaurants, and sporting venues are just a handful of places where this type of incident often occurs. There are a variety of injuries, ranging from minor to fatal, commonly reported in these slip-and-fall accidents, including the following and more:

  • Concussions and traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Neck injuries
  • Back and spinal cord injuries

The aftermath of such an experience can be beyond overwhelming for many victims. Lost wages from missing time at work, mounting medical expenses and rehabilitation costs are just some of the things that could create additional stress during such a trying time. An experienced Florida personal injury attorney can provide much-needed peace of mind to those suddenly facing these situations by carefully exploring one’s potential legal rights to compensation.

Seeking compensation via a premises liability claim

Property owners in the state of Florida along with any individual or business who is in possession of a particular property must follow a duty of care in keeping their premises safe. Any lack of oversight or failure to take action by a property owner can be grounds for a premises liability lawsuit. A successfully litigated claim can result in economic damages to help cover many of the victim’s unfortunate expenses along with noneconomic damages for pain and suffering and emotional distress.
