Slip and Fall – Premises Liability Cases Explained

When most people think of a personal injury lawsuit, auto accidents come to mind. Sarasota residents who are injured in an accident on someone else’s property have rights as well, and a premise’s liability case can help you move on with your life if you’ve been injured in an accident of this kind.

Also called ‘slip and fall’, these accidents can occur practically anywhere – from the local supermarket to the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.

Your physical and mental recoveries are only the beginning – you’ll also have a major financial burden following an accident.

Our lawyers can help. By enlisting an experienced injury attorney, you’ll be able to get the kind of financial compensation that you need to move on with your life after an accident.

Do You Have The Right To Seek Compensation?

Determining your rights is one of the first steps to getting what you’re owed. Under Florida law, you have to show that two factors existed in relation to your accident.
It must be shown that a property owner knew about or should have been aware of a dangerous condition on their property.

It must also be shown that despite their knowledge, the property owner didn’t repair the problem or place a warning to those on the premises about the dangers.

The state of Florida has laws that require property owners to keep their premises free from dangerous factors – especially those that can attract children and cause them harm such as pools, trampolines, or abandoned equipment or appliances.

If any of these factors were involved in your accident, you may have the right to seek financial compensation through a premises liability case.

Standing Up For You

One of the biggest challenges for those injured in an accident is that they just don’t’ have the resources, money, or experience that large corporations, rich property owners, and insurance companies have. it’s common for those injured in an accident to struggle to get any kind of compensation at all.

Even worse, when they finally get compensation, it’s often far less than what they’re owed. Settlement amounts should cover all of your medical costs, lost wages due to time missed from work, and any future potential costs. The idea of a settlement is to help the victims get back to where they would have been if the accident had never occurred.
